Summary: 
A prototype multi-microprocessor system, GMMCS, with a time-slice common bus is built at University of Gunma. The concept of data-driven control is introduced for making the control program simple and clear. The system can also work as a procedural level data flow computer system with plural master processors. A hardware of the system has already been reported in the transaction of IECE Japan. This paper discusses mainly the software especially the method of introducing the concept into the system and the results of sorting programs executed using the system.
