AnyLogic provides complex solutions to plan, manage, and optimize pedestrian flows in public buildings like airports, railway stations, shopping malls, and stadiums.

Building capacity: Public building architects often face the challenge of creating a layout that would avoid bottlenecks and accommodate the expected number of people passing through certain places, buying tickets, going through security checks, etc. The architects also need to stress test the doors, stairs, elevators, escalators, and corridors, and then calculate their capacities at peak pedestrian loads. AnyLogic has a specific Pedestrian Library to help plan a building or validate your project.

Business processes: Sometimes you need to see how introducing a service point would affect traffic congestion in a building. This would include ticket barriers at railway stations, kiosks or ATMs in shopping malls, passport controls at airports, etc. You may also need to know how many items you have to install, or how to optimize their performance in order to fulfill the expected demand. AnyLogic enables you to thoroughly analyze business processes at your facility.

Evacuation planning: Knowing how an evacuation plan will work in a building is crucial for visitors’ safety. AnyLogic allows modelers to test various evacuation plans that reflect the aggressive behavior of people in an emergency situation. The software can also evaluate weak spots, which could be used for illegal activities such as terrorist attacks, and forecast potential damage from such actions.

Shopping area customer traffic: Shopping mall managers need to know the “passability” of selected areas, count the number of people expected to visit a particular shop or see an advertising banner, and how to generate a customer flow required by the renter. Pedestrian simulation with AnyLogic can provide the mall management with these insights.

Public transport accessibility: Visitor flows have to be organized according to traffic sources and directions, that is why it is crucial to simulate transport availability. It is also important to successfully manage parking facilities in order to avoid traffic congestion. Finally, learning how the introduction of a new large object would affect the existing road network is very important for object managers. AnyLogic is a professional tool for planning transport accessibility of an object.

Customers just like you are using AnyLogic to:

  • evaluate building or object capacity
  • find and avoid pedestrian bottlenecks
  • optimize business processes at service points
  • carry out evacuation planning
  • assess shopping area customer traffic
  • evaluate parking, roadway, and public transportation accessibility
