This paper introduces Java-based blast furnace simulator and describes visualization system. The Java-based blast furnace simulator is constructed by integrating existing partial simulators. The visualization system provides integrated visualization information of real measured data and simulation result in order to support blast furnace operation. Furthermore, guidance method based on the simulation result which changes the manipulated variable in tuyere of blast furnace is described.
