In this research, we aim at the establishment of a method of controlling dialogues in accordance with the changes of performance in computation. So that the system takes the most suitable dialogue strategy according to performance in computation, it needs to calculate evaluation functions modeled with performance in computation in the inside all time. In this paper, we clarify dialogue efficiency is the most important evaluation function in controlling task-oriented dialogues, and model dialogue control centered on that evaluation function with computation time of system’s processes. By the users’ dialogue experiment, we con- firmed that the proposed model is effective for improvement of dialogue efficiency.
