Forecast Transportation Scenarios and Evaluate Alternative Solutions with ATOM


Forecast Transportation Scenarios and Evaluate Alternative Solutions with ATOM

Many companies operating large transportation fleets manage logistics with the help of master planning software, such as Oracle SNO, i2, iLog. These linear programing instruments are important, but not enough for successful transportation management and strategy. ATOM’s distinctive feature is the use of simulation models to reproduce the behavior of a real system. The simulation model includes specific characteristics, limitations, and uncertainty, then in addition, captures unexpected dynamics, unlike typical mathematical models.

What’s New in AnyLogic 7? Agent-Based Modeling Enhancements


What’s New in AnyLogic 7? Agent-Based Modeling Enhancements

“The Great Merge.” Most likely this is a familiar term, but perhaps you haven’t been able to experience the idea quite yet, or are not familiar with the many benefits “The Great Merge” permits. Let us take a moment to expand upon “The Great Merge,” other Agent-Based modeling enhancements, and what these changes mean for future model building. “The Great Merge,” in summary, is an ultimate unification of agents, entities, resources, pedestrians, trains, etc. and is useful to modelers in a multitude of ways. Read through the following list to familiarize yourself with the new developments.

Why Grow Your Modeling and Simulation Tool Box?


Why Grow Your Modeling and Simulation Tool Box?

Solving every problem is made easier with multiple tools. The AnyLogic modeling and simulation environment gives you multiple modeling languages, for better, more profitable decision making, but which is the best for your individual needs? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Utilizing AnyLogic to solve your complex business problems, will give you a number of tools, combination of tools, and the guidance to choose wisely. Real world problems rarely conform to one modeling language. Continuing to develop models with one methodology, or using software that only supports one method will limit the breadth and depth of your projects and cause unneeded complications. In these cases, a modeler will have to introduce workarounds, and unnatural elements like variables, blocks, and states, making the development process more problematic. This also makes understanding the model structure more difficult for other developers (and even yourself), increasing the unlikeliness that the model’s parts would be reused.
