Vision Industry 4.0 also includes a digital factory. Its core is based on the ideas of cyber-physics systems, models using all available modelling methods, artificial intelligence that includes fuzzy systems, artificial neural networks, expert systems, etc.This concept is also beneficial to the metallurgical industry, where many systems have been developed, although not under the conception of Industry 4.0, in the past. The article aims to show how the ideas of Industry 4.0 can be used in the blast furnace batch preparation, i.e. in the agglomeration plant.Keywords: modelling, control, artificial intelligence, fuzzy logic, metallurgical industry
