This work was undertaken by the team responsible for instrument control, who are in the process of a phased upgrade of instrument control software from a locally developed system (SECI) to an EPICS  based one (IBEX [3,4]). To increase the complexity of the task, parts of the front end needed to be controlled only by an individual instrument beamline, whilst some values needed to be tuned to the best compromise available for all three beamlines. Furthermore, the muon instruments were not ready for an upgrade to a full IBEX system at that time. By combining SECI, IBEX and the Mantid  data reduction package the required control and tuning has been achieved. This paper will give details of the challenges, the topology of the solution, how the current mixed system is performing, and what will be changed when the muon instruments are converted to IBEX.
