Abstract

The need for a software acquisition standard for the electronic process control system (EPCS) software in US Army Armament Plants (AAP) is discussed. System acquisition guidelines are sought for layaway-compatible software, based on a layaway process concerning ammunition plants which are built using process control computers and software as an integral part of the plant. The plants are 'laid-away' in peacetime and remobilized when ammunition is needed. Areas of special concern and the nature of the standards-development process for this particular environment are also discussed.
