EFECT is a tool set for designing parallel programs for workstation networks and MIMD parallel computers. This software construction system supports application programming with three tools covering major parts of the software life cycle: a graphical editor, a compiler for parallel code and a distributed runtime system. It facilitates software design by using an implicit parallel programming concept with graphical specification and enables efficient computing by powerful dynamic load balancing during runtime.
