AnyLogic 8.8.0 is now available for download. It comes with Java 11, which allows for easier and more concise coding, and improvements to the AnyLogic built-in libraries.
There is a significant and growing wealth gap in almost every country throughout the world. There are many reasons for this growing inequality amongst the population, but can a combination of simulation and luck play a part in identifying how to stop this trend or even reverse it?
Managing under uncertainty is not easy, especially when you’re facing new realities that have never been experienced before. How can you do proper forecasting for your business without relevant historical data? Simulation is the tool to help you with that.
Healthcare simulation shows hospitals’ capacity and resource utilization, helps identify challenges, and leads to the right solutions based on the analysis of test results. Simulation modeling was frequently and successfully used during COVID-19 for evaluating disease spread and mass vaccination. Read in this blog post how simulation is used to accomplish healthcare-related tasks.
Revolving doors are the perfect solution for modern day living. They allow for the movement of people in and out, while maintaining the ideal climate inside the building. See how easy it is to make the most of a revolving door using AnyLogic simulation software.
Urban design projects presented as physical models usually look nice and detailed, but when implemented they may reveal unexpected problems. Even if such models match the actual layouts, some dynamic factors that may affect the design get left out. Using simulation, you can consider the dynamics, which gives you a more complete picture of the system's performance over time.
When packing a container, every square inch of empty space is a money loss – either for you or your company. In warehousing and logistics, filling a container with items as tight to each other as possible to reduce the number of containers is a big deal. Decision Lab took it upon themselves to identify what techniques would help make packing quicker and more efficient. Read to learn more about the project and its results.
Simulation models are based on data, and when you import data from an external database, there’s an efficient approach that won’t affect model performance. Data from MS Excel/MS Access/MS SQL Server can be imported in a couple of clicks but what if it is stored in MySQL or PostgreSQL?
Follow our guide and learn how to connect data in PostgreSQL with an AnyLogic model to create a schedule.
Those of you who are already familiar with simulation modeling certainly know that it can be used in supply chain or manufacturing. Nothing unusual there. However, its application is much wider than that. In this blog post, we give an overview of three different projects demonstrating the versatility of simulation. For technical details, watch the video.
