The power of parallel systems lies in the theoretical possibility of executing multiple tasks in synchronized form. Achievement of this objective involves many factors: understanding of interconnection structures, technological factors, granularity, algorithms and policies (mapping, scheduling, load balancing, routing). The utilization of simulation tools for performance evaluation of these complex systems is a useful option, which allows one to make effective design decisions at earlier stages of the design process. This paper deals with the model specification and tool implementation to support the parallel software design using simulation tools.
