One thing that you may have already noticed is that there is something peculiar about the RTO characteristic. Most people would assume that such a characteristic would become a property of the (business) processes, but in our model, we have created separate nodes to represent these characteristics and linked them together in a chain of RTO values:
- An RTO of 0-2 hours precedes one of 2-4 hours
- An RTO of 2-4 hours precedes one of 4-24 hours
- An RTO of 4-24 hours precedes one of 1-7 days
- An RTO of 1-7 days precedes one of 7-14 days
- An RTO of 7-14 days precedes one of more than 14 days
