Description:  OpTIXII: A software environment for the parallel solution of nonlinear optimization problems. The intention of the paper is to give an introduction to the OpTiXII Software Environment, which supports the parallel and distributed solution of mathematical nonlinear programming problems. First, a brief summary of nonsequential solution concepts for nonlinear optimization on multiprocessor systems is given. The focus of attention is put on coarse grained parallelization and its implementation on multicomputer clusters. The conceptual design objectives for the OpTiXII Software Environment is presented as well as the implementation on a workstation cluster a transputer system and a multiprocessor workstation (shared memory). The OpTiXII system supports the steps from the formulation of nonlinear optimization problems to their solution on networks of (parallel) computers. In order to demonstrate the use of OpTiXII, the solution of a nonlinear optimization problem from the field of structural design is discussed and some numerical test results are supplied
