We have successfully developed a technique to integrate an automatic event-generator generation system GRACE and a general-purpose event generator framework PYTHIA. The codes generated by GRACE are embedded in PYTHIA in the created event generator program. The embedded codes give information on parton-level hard interactions directly to PYTHIA. The choice of PDF is controlled by the ordinary parameter setting in PYTHIA. This technique enables us to create easy-to-handle event generators for any processes in hadron collisions. Especially, in virtue of large capability of GRACE, we can easily deal with those processes containing many (four or more) partons in the final state, such as multiple heavy particle productions. This project is being carried out as a collaboration between the Japanese Atlas group and the Minami-Tateya group, aiming at developing event generators for Tevatron and LHC experiments.
