In this paper a new criterion for automatic re-modularization of object-oriented programs is presented. The aim of re-modularization here is to determine a distributed execution of a program over a dedicated network of computers with the shortest execution time. To achieve this, a criterion to quantitatively evaluate performance of a re-modularized program is presented as a function. This function is automatically constructed while traversing the program call flow graph once before the search for the optimal re-modularization of the program and considers both synchronous and asynchronous types for each call within the call flow graph.
