The simulation of parallel systems is an alternative approach to classical parallel system programming. This simulation provides performance prediction results that allow the reduction of parallel program development time-scale. Simulation requires accurate models of the parallel program, parallel architecture and all real characteristics of the parallel system. This paper describes a simulation environment of parallel systems that is included in a parallel programming environment in order to facilitate the parallel programming cycle for the user.
