The limitations and weaknesses associated with control-flow and data-flow are described, leading to the description of the proposed concept of associative dataflow. Simulation results of existing dataflow systems are compared with associative dataflow model to support the fact that the new model of computation provides faster execution time and better ALU utilization than the conventional models. Design of an associative data flow system is described by providing as much details as can possibly be incorporated to understand the concept with reference to existing computer systems. Lastly, specifications of the designed system are outlined by listing important characteristics of the associative dataflow system.
