Using current design methods programmers cannot determine effective use of threading strategies that can maximize the effectiveness of multi-core architectures. Approaches such as effective threading strategies including, how many threads are needed, where the threading occurs, the existence of performance bottlenecks and the demands of code maintenance require domain-specific a priori knowledge. The novel, multidisciplinary approach to parallel programming challenges will help alleviate problems currently experienced within the discipline. The Tri-tier Architecture Modeling Environment (TAME) will combine abstract modeling, intelligent threading, and performance heuristics and to solve this problem. TAME will employ Dr. Eunice E. Santos cutting edge research in performance models of communication systems in order to deliver a superior implementation. Dr. Santos brings important credibility to the team as her work has garnered an award for Technical Achievement for contributions to computational social network systems[1]. It is this work that Securboration will apply to the field of parallel computation, in a novel, cross-disciplinary implementation.
