We present a method for the automatic derivation of efficient protocol implementations from a formal specification. Optimized efficient protocol implementation has become an important issue in telecommunications systems engineering as recently network throughput has increased much faster than computer processing power. Efficiency will be attained by two measures. First, the inherent parallelism in protocol specifications will be exploited. Second, the order of execution of the operations involved in the processing of the protocol data will be allowed to differ from the order prescribed in the specification, thus allowing operations to be executed jointly and more efficiently. The method will be defined formally which is useful when implementing it as a tool
