  Applications Organizing Index (AOI) is a relational database tool that has been implemented at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) to aid in the management of more than 600 unique control system applications. AOI provides control system developers an intuitive view of and navigation links to the components that make up a single control system such as source code files, operator displays, process variables, work history notes, programmable components, validation procedures, drawings, and more. The foundation for the Applications Organizing Index tool is the collaborative effort between several Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) sites to build the common relational database schema for documenting large and complex particle accelerator control systems, Integrated Relational Model of Installed Systems (IRMIS). This paper describes the evolution of AOI as it became populated with APS control systems component data and as users’ requests for new features of AOI became apparent.
