Abstract: PARSE is a staged object-based design methodology for parallel and distributed software systems. In the highest stage, a graphical notation is used to describe the system components (objects) and their interconnections. In the subsequent stage, the designer introduces the behaviour of the objects, by means of a textual notation. This paper shows a mechanical transformation of the textual representation of a PARSE design into a complete Petri net model. This supports the integration of formal analysis techniques into the early stage of the software development process, and provides a formal semantics for the design notation.
