InsCorp is launching a roadside assistance service as a coverage option for automobile insurance policies. Customers initiate Assistance Request cases. After the service is completed, a customer service representative should review a summary of the service provided within 15 minutes and must complete the review within 30 minutes; otherwise, the assignment is considered late. To encourage assignment completion, configure the passed deadline interval to increase the urgency of the assignment by ten every 15 minutes after the Deadline interval elapses until the urgency reaches a maximum of 100. 

Tip: For this exercise, you can adjust the goal, deadline, and passed deadline intervals to shorter durations.
