You do realize that in most real business contexts, that's absolutely no help?
Your ship schedule is your commitment. "Our supplier gave us bad parts" gets you no credit. It's no excuse, and trying to use it like an excuse will get you on the "never let them bid on anything else" list.
If you're a manufacturer, subcontractor and supply chain management is on YOU. Your customer rightly blames YOU for the problem. You, as a manufacturer, buy counterfeit parts, and it's YOUR FAULT.
