The Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer (MROI) software system contains distributed systems managed by a centralized Supervisory System. Interface software is generated from spreadsheets that describe commands, monitor points, and fault conditions for each subsystem. The Supervisory System consists of an Executive, Operator, Database Manager; one or more Supervisors plus Fault Manager, and Data Collectors. System-wide simulations are discussed: (1) a test framework is generated from the spreadsheets characterizing a subsystem; (2) a detailed simulation of the actual hardware in a subsystem; (3) a system-wide simulation of collecting astronomical data based on executing observing projects. The first two levels have been implemented.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
