5.1.2. Other application Product Errors or issues: Product Errors that affect certain business scenarios and have no workaround (e.g. error messages when trying to perform certain functions) Product Errors that have a workaround Product Errors regarding usability, screen layout, field names or other UI components

5.2.   Four level criticality classification will be used as follows:

5.2.1. Criticality 1

Majority of users are unable to use the Product. The specific functionality is mission-critical to the business and the situation is considered an emergency

5.2.2. Criticality 2

Critical loss of application functionality or performance resulting in a high number of users unable to use the Product. Major feature/product failure; inconvenient workaround or no workaround exists. The Product is usable but severely limited. Examples of such failures can be but are not limited to:

5.2.3. Criticality 3

Moderate loss of application functionality or performance resulting in multiple users impacted in their normal functions. Minor feature/product failure, a convenient workaround exists/minor performance degradation/not impacting production.

5.2.4. Criticality 4

Minor loss of application functionality, product feature requests, how-to questions. The issue consists of "how-to" questions including issues related to one or multiple modules and integration, installation and configuration inquiries, enhancement requests, or documentation questions.
