Summary: Analyzes a psychological protocol of a person planning a
group of errands to run. Uses this protocol to demonstrate the
feasibility of a model of cognition which involves a set of "cognitive
specialists" working at various levels of abstraction and
communicating via a "blackboard." Describes the different portions of
the blackboard and how they correspond to observed behavior in the
protocol. Describes a computer simulation intended to follow the same
reasoning paths as the subject. Contrasts their work with traditional
(i.e. successive refinement) planning strategies.
