The book, AnyLogic 6 in Three Days: A Quick Course in Simulation Modeling, is now available as an eBook for Kindle! Now you can explore AnyLogic using your eReader, iPad, iPhone, Android, or any other gadget that supports this format.
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.
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.
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.
This year has started out with two back-to-back trade shows! At Promat 2013 – supply chain, manufacturing and distribution trade show – AnyLogic team showcased the demo models built to optimize the distributors/resellers network, average delivery time and terminal operations. Most of the feedback we got on the Adaptive Supply Chain, Flexible Manufacturing Supply Chain[/url] and Container Line models.
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."

How to learn multi-paradigm modeling? “In AnyLogic training classes!” is an answer from 200 simulation practitioners who chose our courses in the year 2012. For the past months AnyLogic team delivered trainings to twelve cities in USA, France, Japan, Germany, South Africa, Russia, India and China. We are most proud of our students. The 2012 AnyLogic classes brought together researchers, consultants, academics from 48 organizations. PWC Consulting, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, The United States Military Academy, Toyota, Keio University, BHP Billiton, GE, IBM to name a few. That’s how they replied to the question why to attend AnyLogic training course:
AnyLogic 6.9 has been released! All AnyLogic users with valid maintenance are welcome to upgrade! We continue working on Pedestrian Library: in the new version you will see such new features as density map, collecting statistics on pedestrian flows, new behavior of pedestrian groups in services, area throughput definition. We added a number of new examples and made some other changes. Please upgrade to the latest AnyLogic version.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! Here at AnyLogic HQ we use the Orthodox calendar and celebrate after New Years'. During the Holidays we will be prioritizing and answering customer requests with a reduced staff and will be back to full strength on Wednesday, January 9th.
