I agree with the formula. 
But there is ways to make it more efficient, get a better quotient from it:

The triage team is one factor. So, instead of X/Y, you have (X/t)/Y, meaning 
that the triage team will filter noise.

One, that I have long been campaining for, is to multiply Y by R, where R is 
the distributions: X/(R * Y) will be much better.. 

And, of course, reduce the time needed for every Y to do their work, 
repackage, fix the code, manage patches or generally finish each issue.

Say NO to spam and viruses. Stop using Microsoft Windows!
