This paper introduces a new method for the design & analysis of control software. We constructed a software designing environment utilizing virtual reality. It includes a human-machine interface for interactive operation, sound effects and wide range stereo optics working space for representation of huge numbers of nodes and complex information flows. In this paper, configuration of the environment, the method of design, analysis and software representation, and efficiency of this method are described.
