Computer implementation of mathematical models, algorithms, and computer programs is given for resolving a set of production problems in the field of blast furnace production introduced into Magnitogorsk Metallurgical Combine. Requirements are considered for the structure and architecture of a computer system for support of solutions adopted for an MES-level Blast Furnace Technologist workstation. A short description is provided for the main model sub-systems, and also assumptions made during mathematical modeling. Use of the systems makes it possible for engineering and production personnel to perform operational analysis of a blast furnace workshop situation, to resolve a number of production problems for controlling blast furnace heat, gas-dynamic, and slag regimes, and also to calculate the optimum blast furnace charge composition, which finally provides an improvement in blast furnace production technical and economic operating indices.
