Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

A supplier delivering wrong Long Lead item to site. How would you handle calculating the risk in this case?

Any ideas. Thank you.

Who was responsible for this order? Customer --> reason for claim; you --> prepare for penalty. It will be necessary to check the contract - by an advocat.
Wrong, does it mean you can’t use it, or you can use it with modifications or additional work?
I assume you work for an EPC contractor, so your employer most probably is responsible.
But who did expediting, i.e. the supplier’s control?

No chance to give an answer without more information.
