Instructions function as control structures that determine the agent’s behavior. Our own work has focussed on instructions given to agents before they undertake a task, such as procedural instructions and warnings. Such intructions are widespread, found packaged in with devices as small as fuses (i.e.. instructions for removing the blown fuse and installing the new fuse contained in the package) and as large as V-16 aircraft (e.g., instructions for performing routine maintelmnce on the air conditioning water separator, on the flight control system power supplies, etc.).
