Outline We discuss about parallel processing architecture taking topic of the basic issues and also the latest research cases, for example Data Flow Model, from the view point of the system specification / verification methods and realization. Then, we mention not only achievement of high function and high performance but also maintenance of information system, the point of continuity view and the coming parallel and distributed processing system.
