The parabolic-hyperbolic formulation of the initial data of the Einstein equations for multiple black holes systems has been proposed recently [1-3]. It provides an alternative to the traditional conformal method [4]. During the talk, a numerical implementation of the approach to the initial data problem of general relativity will be presented. It will involve black holes described by a metric of a Kerr-Schild form.
