Our objective is to show a parallel system development method within the educational area based on the Parallel System Development Environment (PSEE). To do so, first we define the development cycle proposed by PSEE, and the theoretical model underlying it. Secondly, we use an example (matrix multiplication algorithm) to illustrate all the method steps, which are: Algorithm Choice-Criteria, Problem Presentation (how to present the problem to the student), Modelling the algorithm (using the theoretical model), Programming (using an appropriate parallel language), Functional Simulation of the program, Behavioural Simulation (algorithm and architecture), and Trace Visualization and Evaluation. This paper gives a description of the parallel systems development method, based on our own experience with PSEE (Parallel System Evaluation Environment) .
