  Critical      Would cause faiilure of complete system, for all users, until
                fixed.  No work-around.

  Severe        Functionality loss for all or many usrs, without any acceptable
                word-around.  Rest of the system can be used.

  Major         Would result in aspects of the system being unusable, but
                otherwise generally remains operable.  Would cause failure for a
                relatively low number of users.

  Minor         Avoidable with a work-around.  Rarely causes failure for users.

  Insignificant Minor infringement of specification.  Does not affect usability
                of the system.  Functional loss which can be tolerated in
                the medium to long term.
