We present an integrated environment for the systematic development of
parallel and distributed programs. Our approach allows the user
to construct complex applications by composing and transforming skeletons,
i.e., recurring patterns of task and data parallelism.
First academic and commercial experience with skeleton-based systems
has demonstrated the benefits of the approach but also the lack of
a dedicated set of methods for algorithm design and performance prediction.
We take a first step towards such a set of methods by proposing an
environment which integrates a framework for algorithm transformation,
called FAN, with two existing skeleton-based programming systems:
the academic system P3L and its commercial counterpart SkIE.
