The problem is that whatever penalties the contract states if the supplier fails to deliver due to production problems despite making their best efforts then is difficult, if not impossible to enforce such penalties. It is extremely difficult to prove a supplier did not make their best efforts and without that proof no court will enforce penalties; they accept shit happens.

For example, look at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport (BER) where opening was delayed eight years, cost overruns were in the billions and nobody paid any penalties.
Then it is bad contracting, as I said.
