The most effective control system tools for operators are generally made by people who have experience in operations. At NSCL and FRIB, several operators are making their own CS-Studio content but are often limited by the signals available to them. One solution is to develop some degree of control system expertise within the operations group, enabling them to use the standard control system tools and processes to support their needs. This contribution will look at how operators can learn to use EPICS IOCs and Python scripts to clarify the presentation of information and streamline tasks.
