%X In this paper, we present a tool for optimisation of
   execution of parallel programs in distributed memory
   multi\-processor systems with dynamic interconnection
   networks. The programs are described as Directed Acyclic
   Graphs (DAGs). The tool allows to compare simulated
   execution times for different task scheduling heuristics,
   target system topologies and communication models. A list
   scheduling algorithm, which has been applied, accounts for
   dynamic changes of interconnection structure. We demonstrate
   the efficiency of dynamic networks by comparing schedules
   obtained for dynamic and fixed topology systems. We propose
   a method of validating simulation results in a target system
   composed of T9000 transputers. The method relies on
   comparison of simulation results with execution times of
   synthetic OCCAM applications in the target system. The
   comparison indicates that assumptions taken on program
   execution and system model hold in the system under
