Most important milestone in programme is planned Completion. If this is beyond the Completion Date then the Contractor is liable to pay Delay Damages. If ever there is a compensation event, the test is to see how much it has affected planned completion - you then move Completion Date by the same amount. Completion Date movement is the by-product of what happened to planned. This is why planned Completion is so important.
