AnyLogic Europe Visits Leading Airport Terminal Event


AnyLogic Europe Visits Leading Airport Terminal Event

Planning a huge airport terminal is a task that requires simulation modeling to complete the project successfully. A forum where airport planners gather is the ideal place to demonstrate the powerful alliance of the three simulation methods of AnyLogic software in action. The 2013 Passenger Terminal Expo, the leading airport passenger terminal exhibition, took place in Geneva from April 9-11. This year’s exposition was recognized as the most successful one in its 19 year history. The event united more than 180 exhibitors with more than 3500 professionals. The visitors included company CEOs, architects, airport engineers, airline representatives, and many other professionals connected to the airport industry.

AnyLogic North America Attends INFORMS – San Antonio

AnyLogic North America recently exhibited at the very well attended INFORMS show in San Antonio, TX. It was a pleasant surprise to see the mix of Academics and Business attendees as well as the diverse tracks INFORMS provided to appease their quest for knowledge. While many folks who already knew of AnyLogic stopped by our booth to say “hi” or challenge Scott Hebert (our North American Technical Consultant) on best practices; see picture, there were many professionals who are currently experiencing true business challenges and were looking to AnyLogic to help them solve their problems.

Full Screencast Available: Healthcare Dynamic Modeling Workshop & Training


We have a new video available on our website. It is complete screencast of Healthcare Dynamic Modeling Workshop & Training that took place in Sydney this February. The instructors were Nathaniel Osgood (University of Saskatchewan), Geoff McDonnell (University of New South Wales, Australia), and Andrei Borshchev (CEO at the AnyLogic Company).

Complete Workshop Video Available: “Introduction into Simulation Modeling for Business Applications”


The “Introduction into Simulation Modeling for Business Applications” workshop video is now available on our website. Dr. Andrei Borshchev, CEO of The AnyLogic Company, was the presenter. This workshop program introduces the audience to different simulation modeling approaches and shows examples of their use. It also illustrates the various features of AnyLogic 6 and reviews several real-life problems from different industries that were solved with the help of simulation modeling. The program is specifically designed for those who are new to simulation modeling to explain and demonstrate why simulation modeling is important and what kind of problems it helps to solve.

AnyLogic Fundamentals Training in Paris – March 11-13, 2013


AnyLogic Fundamentals Training in Paris – March 11-13, 2013

Paris in spring…what a wonderful combination! Perhaps that was the reason we chose this time and place for our Fundamentals Training. In Russia, it is still freezing, so it was a huge relief for us to escape to the ever-blossoming capital of France. We found ourselves in the 16th century quarter of Marais, where the walls breathe history. Is there something as exciting as this place? Nothing but learning simulation there.

Healthcare Dynamic Modeling Workshop & Training in Sydney

Dynamic Modeling Workshop & Training took place on 18-22 February 2013 at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney. Healthcare was the main field of simulation modeling application discussed there. The workshop’s target audience was simulation modeling specialists, researchers, practitioners and policy makers who wanted to advance their knowledge in dynamic modeling methods and see some examples of their use. 42 people attended the event. You can find the materials here.

Some citations: "Frequently, the problem cannot completely conform to one modeling paradigm. Using a traditional single-method tool, the modeler inevitably either starts using workarounds (unnatural and cumbersome language constructs), or just leaves part of the problem outside the scope of the model (treats it as exogenous). If our goal is to capture business, economic, and social systems in their interaction, this becomes a serious limitation."
