AnyLogic 8.6 is here! We have added new features to the industry-specific libraries, improved animation, and simplified the update process. Read more about the innovations, download the new version, and start working with AnyLogic 8.6!
A new way to get started with AnyLogic’s Material Handling Library is now available — the MHL Pocket Handbook. At our Planning & Optimizing AGVs and Conveyors webinar with DSE Consulting, June 2020, attendees were introduced to this new interactive tool for learning MHL blocks. Both the pocket handbook and the webinar also provide sneak peeks at some upcoming AnyLogic 8.6 features.
Webinar host Aanand Davé, managing director of DSE Consulting, introduced in-house DSE simulation specialist, Kelvin Yeung, and Jock Richardson, director at agri-tech company Growpura. Together, they demonstrated material handling simulation using AnyLogic and highlighted its use in industry with a model of Growpura’s large-scale hydroponics setup.

Why is it so hard to model the COVID-19 epidemic? In this guest blog Ignacio Brottier and Patricio Pipp look at how agent-based simulation modeling goes beyond traditional SEIR and its shortfalls.
The first step to understanding any system is asking ourselves what it is we are trying to understand and, as the team of FiveThirtyEight well explains in their very recommended article, understanding COVID-19’s evolution is no easy task...
Learn how to create a self-configuring material handling digital twin from this webinar recording with accompanying simulation model. Presented by Dr. Benjamin Schumann in three chapters, the webinar covers how to automatically configure machines and products, conveyors, and automatic guided vehicles (AGV).

In this third installment, there are two new chapters for the key AnyLogic text are now online and available for download. In these two chapters, learn about Statecharts and 3D animation.
The 'Big Book of Simulation Modeling, Multimethod Modeling with AnyLogic 8', is the essential text for those learning simulation modeling and AnyLogic. It is the only book to comprehensively present the three major methods in simulation modeling: agent-based, system dynamics, and discrete-event.
Suitable for new users, intermediate, and advanced, the book provides examples and step-by-step guides based on a variety of application areas. Read on, learn what's in the new chapters and download them to read.
Dr. Igor Mazurok and his team applied AnyLogic simulation in the research of blockchain consensus mechanisms. Focusing on the Java based Nxt network, the team propose supplementing the network’s Proof of Stake consensus mechanism with a Proof of Greed mechanism so that transaction verification is rewarded more fairly.
