Two new methodological results are obtained: first, a way to perturb a network into one with a product-form solution for its equilibrium state probabilities, and secondly, a new compositional approach to deriving corresponding response time distributions. The Reversed Compound Agent Theorem (RCAT) is used to construct suitable perturbations in near-product-form networks that render them separable by satisfying the conditions of this theorem. Response time calculations in stochastic networks are
