The work expanded the definition of a distributed architecture model that would support digital signal processing applications. Efforts concentrated on two aspects the development of a reliable simulation facility that would more accurately predict the performance of our distributed system known as the d-ALPS framework, and the exploration of models of analysis for task distribution and resource allocation within that framework. The first portion resulted in a set of computer programs that interacted within our existing behavioral model for support d-ALPS applications. The simulator itself is a flexible system that allows a variable degree of report information to be generated for specification execution sequences. It was written to be relatively portable within a UNIX-based environment. The second portion resulted in a masters-level thesis that discussed analysis methods for d-ALPS architecture in terms of four broad analytical techniques static analysis, state generation analysis, schedule simulation, and architectural simulation. Each of these methodologies is developed in terms of a series of relevant application models that highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the d-ALPS approach.
