This paper reports on new research into the computer modelling and simulation of the
UMC (Universal Machine Control) Reference Architecture. A key factor in the UMC Reference
Architecture is the provision of aset of software configuration tools to facilitate the building
of modular machines and machine control structures. In this respect the roles of geometric
solid modelling and logical control modelling are emphasised in the paper.
