The paper presents basic ideas of three of the possible structures of hierarchical control for a dynamic system. All these structures are closed-loop, that is, they make use of feedback in form of the state measured in the controlled system. Local decision units and a supremal unit (coordinator) exist in each of the hierarchical structures, but they differ in the tasks assigned to each level. The price coordination method allows for relative autonomy of the local units, which are being asked to solve appropriate short-horizon, dynamic problems in a repetitive way. In the other two structures the local problems are non-dynamical, but would be much less natural for a human decision maker.
