The application of the BOXES paradigm to continuous, non failing systems seems anomalous. The paper discusses such an application with special reference to a simulation of a trash to steam plant. The paper indicates cost savings attributable to intelligent control and opens for discussion real time BOXES applications for poorly or non-definable systems. The BOXES method must be modified to accommodate endless operation and focuses on the notion of augmenting a safe, non optimal system with AI generated control values. The paper compares the resulting plant performance to that of a simple rule based algorithm and a random idiot exercising the same control authority as BOXES.
