A computer control system that was developed for a large particle beam accelerator is described. The system is composed of a series of VAX computers, programmable controllers, and graphics operator consoles. Unique to the software design is the ability to reconfigure rapidly the operator's view of the machine as well as the associated control logic used whenever a new physics experiment is implemented. The discussion covers the hardware and software configuration of the system, the features of the operator console, and the graphics panel edits
