    Correct Answer
    B. Accurate reporting of PC failure rates (which can impact vendor negotiations)
    Explanation
    Including critical information and relating the incident to the actual machine that has failed is vital for accurate reporting of PC failure rates. This information helps in determining the frequency and severity of PC failures, which is crucial for negotiating with vendors. By accurately reporting failure rates, organizations can highlight the reliability issues and demand better quality products or services from vendors. This data also aids in decision-making processes such as whether to continue with a particular vendor or explore alternatives. Therefore, accurate reporting of PC failure rates can have a significant impact on vendor negotiations and ultimately improve the quality of products and services received.

    Relating a Configuration Item (CI) to the ITSM incident is vital to associate the piece of hardware to the incident no matter what groups it gets submitted to (this is the basis for determining failure rates of machines)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Relating a Configuration Item (CI) to the ITSM incident is important because it allows for the association of a specific piece of hardware to the incident, regardless of which groups it is submitted to. This is crucial in determining the failure rates of machines, as it helps track and analyze incidents related to specific hardware configurations. By linking the CI to the incident, it becomes easier to identify patterns and trends in machine failures, enabling better decision-making and proactive maintenance.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which tab do I find the CI window (in order to relate the incident to the piece of hardware)?

    • A.

      Assignment

    • B.

      Classification

    • C.

      Customer

    • D.

      Portal Attachments

    Correct Answer
    C. Customer
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Customer. In order to relate the incident to a piece of hardware, you would need to access the CI (Configuration Item) window. The CI window is typically found under the Customer tab in most incident management systems. This tab allows you to view and manage customer-related information, including the hardware associated with the incident.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    If the customer's profile does not have a CI listed, in what tab would you need to search for a CI to relate to the incident?

    • A.

      Relationships

    • B.

      Resolution

    • C.

      Customer

    • D.

      Classification

    Correct Answer
    A. Relationships
    Explanation
    If the customer's profile does not have a CI listed, you would need to search for a CI to relate to the incident in the "Relationships" tab. This tab is specifically designed to manage and display the relationships between different entities, such as customers and configuration items (CIs). Therefore, it is the most appropriate place to search for a CI when it is not listed in the customer's profile.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    When searching for a CI, what hardware information is recommended to input for this search?

    • A.

      Model

    • B.

      CI Name

    • C.

      Room number

    • D.

      Serial Number

    Correct Answer
    D. Serial Number
    Explanation
    When searching for a CI, it is recommended to input the Serial Number as the hardware information for the search. This is because the Serial Number uniquely identifies a specific hardware device, allowing for accurate and specific search results. The Model, CI Name, and Room Number may provide additional information about the hardware, but they are not as crucial for identifying a specific device as the Serial Number.

    Thorough incident detail can make possible hardware failure forecasting (for proactive recalls which minimizes downtime for impacted customers)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Thorough incident detail can help in predicting hardware failures, allowing for proactive recalls and minimizing downtime for affected customers. By analyzing detailed incident information, patterns and trends can be identified, enabling companies to take preventive measures and address potential issues before they lead to hardware failures. This approach helps in improving customer satisfaction by reducing the impact of downtime and ensuring timely resolutions. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What does NOT belong in terms of proper classification of a hardware incident?

    • A.

      Tier 1+ field should reflect the symptoms of the problem: (Failure)

    • B.

      Product Name+ field should reflect the manufacturer of asset affected (Lenovo)

    • C.

      Model/Version field must be completed for Hardware incidents to accurately reflect the model of the PC held by the customer

    • D.

      Manufacturer can be left blank

    Correct Answer
    D. Manufacturer can be left blank
    Explanation
    In terms of proper classification of a hardware incident, all the given options are important except for "Manufacturer can be left blank". The manufacturer of the asset affected is crucial information for accurately identifying and resolving the hardware incident. Therefore, leaving the manufacturer field blank would hinder the proper classification and resolution of the incident.

    A customer’s PC shell is exchanged for a working swap is a prime example of when the Impact and Urgency can be changed to reflect high business impact

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because the exchange of a customer's PC shell for a working swap does not necessarily change the Impact and Urgency to reflect high business impact. The Impact and Urgency are determined by the potential consequences and the time sensitivity of an incident or problem. In this scenario, the impact and urgency may not be high if the PC shell is easily replaceable and the customer's work is not significantly affected.
