We have proposed an Integrated System Model (ISM) to address the problem of high economic development costs of concurrent programs. The ISM is composed of multi-level modules that abstract both the high-level program design as well as the low-level optimization. Both the intrinsic parallelism of a given input systolic algorithm and level parallelism of the software necessary to represent an implementation of the given algorithm on a multicomputer are incorporated into the high-level program design component of ISM. We briefly describe this process by presenting a summary of this aspect of ISM. Several experiments on the concurrent implementations of the software modules for these algorithms are presented. Our results are encouraging.
