This document describes the plan to manage MSFC (Marshall Space Flight Center) development of the EPB (Excitation Power Box) for the ET (External Tank) Project in the Space Shuttle Program. This plan is consistent with development of OTS (Off the Shelf) hardware and will utilizes processes consistent with Marshall Work Instruction "Off-the-Shelf Hardware Utilization in Flight Hardware Development" (MWI 8060.1) and Space Shuttle Program COTS (Commercial Off the Shelf) requirements in "Flight and Ground System Specification, Book 1" (NSTS 07700, Volume X, Book 1, Section 3.3.7).
