A framework for constructing solutions to planning problems in
which time spent on planning affects the utility of the system's
performance. The motivation is important. Ignore the details.

Situated control rules act to reduce the nondeterministic choice of
control programs. They are computed as time becomes available for

Acting through improvisation and without planning.
Pengi is a program that engages in a complex, apparently planful
activity without requiring explicit models of the world. Pengi
uses indexical functions to cope with the active world. The claim
that complex behavior can result from a simple system interacting
with a complex environment was given earlier by Herb Simon
