This conversation started on the EPIC 3.0 announcement thread and I am starting a new thread for it here as suggested.
Instead of trying to re-invent the wheel, I spent some time looking around for UI examples that exist for other PLC solutions. This example from Eurotherm by Schneider shows what looks a lot like a simple spreadsheet style interface for creating the Set Point Programs which is basically what I was looking for.

As you mentioned in the previous conversation @Beno, the PID loop would have to be referenced too.
