In this paper we report on an implementation case study regarding the coordination description language Paradigm. We show how to restructure existing Paradigm models to facilitate their efficient implementation on a software coordination architecture like the ToolBus. The restructuring is in part achieved by transforming hierarchical manager-employee relations into symmetric mutual control and by exploiting structural component similarities. On top of this, we introduce the coordinator-weaver-performer pattern, which combines local separation of coordination and computation with a globally endogenous coordination strategy. The approach is illustrated for a generic servicing example.
