This paper presents a novel parallel architecture
for production systems. It relies on modern asso­
ciative memory techniques to construct an envi­
ronment in which productions can be fired in par­
allel even before the actions of previously fired
productions are fully processed. This approach
is made possible by the use of the serializabil­
ity criterion for correctness. An approximate so­
lution for the rule partitioning problem is pre­
sented. Measurements of speedup obtained from
a detailed event­driven simulator indicate the po­
tential of this new architecture.
