Modular application builders (MABs), such as AVS and Iris Explorer are increasingly being used in the visualization community. Such systems can already place compute intensive modules on supercomputers in order to utilize their power. This paper details two major projects at EPCC which attempted to fully integrate the MAB concept with a distributed memory MIMD (DM-MIMD) environment. The work presented was driven by two goals, efficient use of the resource and case of use by programmer and end user. We present a model of MABs and describe the major problems faced, giving solutions to them through two case studies
