GSI performs basic and applied research in physics and related natural science disciplines using a heavy ion accelerator facility. The control system group of the department for Computing and Experiment Electronics (DVEE) helps the experiments in developing and implementing experiment control systems. In many cases, control systems for small experiments with up to a few thousands process variables have been developed for specific experiments. The reusability of such a system is limited. Another possibility is the development of a general control system framework. Such a framework can be applied to a large variety of experiments by implementing a few experiment specific add-ons. During the past two years, the Control System (CS) framework , that is based on LabVIEW , has been developed at GSI. In autumn 2002, that framework has gone into production at the SHIPTRAP  experiment
