The paper presents a system to optimize, control, visualization and data storage PVD processes. The system has been designed based on LabVIEW and has been successfully used in the optical industry. Visualization is very intuitive for the operator, provides an easy opportunity to control all process parameters. Saved data allow to create a library that allows to improve the quality of coatings and gives you the ability to analyze processes. The low cost of the introduction of the system also makes it a very useful tool for modifying older vacuum coaters and gives a chance to its gradual expansion. The collected libraries allow you to recreate and optimize the process of applying layers of materials.Keywords: Process control system, library processes, LabVIEW graphical programming, antireflective coatings, thin films
