This thesis proposes and implements a high-level user interface for a parallel operating system. The hardware for both the parallel operating system (Inmos Transputers) and the user interface (an IBM compatible AT) is fixed by the nature of the associated NASA project. The first part of the paper focuses on the background and justification for selecting Windows as the environment in which the operator communicates with the operating system. Chapter 3 is a complete operator's manual. Chapters 4, 5, and 6 provide the programmer's documentation for each of the three programs required to implement the interface. Chapter 7 provides an analysis of the project results.
