What use was Hurricane Pam?

Just over a year ago, FEMA and state agencies concluded a "successful" catastrophic hurricane exercise, Hurricane Pam. It was nearly prescient in predicting the Katrina scenario.

What good did it do? When this is over, I'm genuinely curious about several questions:
  1. Were the plans created for and after "Pam" followed?
  2. Were the plans only workable on paper?
  3. Did the plans work but were inadequate to the reality of the situation?
  4. Were the plans not even followed, and if not, why?
