500% WOW - when I was contracting - they would have made me marry one of the owners daughters BY SHOTGUN!! We're not talking about Cinderella here - we're talking about the Evil step-sisters now! Where is this acceptable? PC/WEB projects seem to do this - anyway - I have people I deliver this stuff to - so when they are late, I'M late... when I'm late (and possibly loose TONS of revenue) then everything goes down the tubes. Here's how it goes - one of my vendors is BIG - so when they say Jump - I get a pogo-stick. So when I hire a vendor to do something, and they miss a deadline, after I promised something to MY client - there is ENORMOUS potential for problems. Project estimation shouldn't be THIS much of guesswork - when I'm 10% late - I feel bad & work my butt off until stuff is done. FYI - this is PC's...

A project that take 300% longer than the original target date is NOT EVEN considered LATE (on non-400 platforms). In my experience, that point isn't approached until the project slips to.. oh... somewhere around 500% past the due date. As you suggested, it depends on the technology the vendor is using. The more useless whirly-gigs are supplied, the greater that percentage generally is. jt
