Performance Metrics


Productivity is defined as the ratio of output to input in production. This would mean producing the expected output as agreed with the client in a given amount of time, without affecting the high quality of service.

The goal is to deliver to the client the SLA or the service-level agreement at the agreed time.

  • Output
  • Deadline
  • Quality of service

Service-level agreement (SLA) is a contract between a service provider and its internal or external customers that documents what services the provider will furnish and defines the service standards the provider is obligated to meet.
