This paper presents an overview or the EPICS control systera at FEIDiILAB. EPICS is a distributed, multi-user, interactive system for the control and monitoring of particle bea~lines at a high-energy experimental physics laboratory. The overview discusses the oper1tting environ::ient of the control system, the reqnireraents which determined the design decisions, the hardware and software configurations, and plans for the future growth and enhanceoent of the ~resent sys tam. This paper is thei
