I agree. It is not all that difficult to build such a system but 
making sure the people using it properly understand what information 
they need from the customer to ensure that the assignment is properly 
justified is another matter. I don't think this is a task for entry 
level NOC staff where churn might be high and understanding low. They 
are probably also not that good at telling the customer no, they are 
more interested in the customer going away (happy).
