Keywords: Modeling, identification, and control

Abstract: A model for the process under control - do or don´t we really need it? Some elementary philosophical considerations confirming such a need, are well supported by examples of various ´optimal´ control schemes. How does this affirmation influence the requirements to identification and the implemcntation of control using such a model?.
