AnyLogic Featured in Rail Application Text Book


AnyLogic Featured in Rail Application Text Book

The Handbook of Operations Research Applications at Railroads (International Series in Operations Research & Management Science) is the first book to offer a complete spectrum of the role that operations research has played and can play in the improvement of North American freight railroads. It explores how decisions are made at railroads, contains examples of the mathematical programming formulations to the complex problems, and provides insights into real-world applications. AnyLogic is featured in two chapters: Simulation of Line of Road Operations and Terminal Simulation written by Roger Baugher, who has worked to apply Operations Research tools to railroads for over 40 years as both a railroad employee and consultant (B. Patty, Preface). Roger was instrumental in the development of Algorithmic Blocking and Classification (ABC) while at Norfolk Southern, was the first recipient of the Railroad Applications Special Interest Group (RASIG) Award for his contributions to OR in the railroad industry and is a Franz Edelman Laureate. In addition to Norfolk Southern, Roger Baugher applied his understanding of network optimization approaches to various forms of the transportation organizations, such as BNSF, American Airlines, Pacer Stacktrain, Conrail where he played an integral part in developing the Conrail Network Analysis Model (CNAM)

Why do universities value AnyLogic?


Today, modeling and simulation are in high demand. Surprisingly, there are few universities that have programs designed for them. In 2000, Old Dominion University was the first in the United States to offer a Ph.D. in modeling and simulation. Now it is the only university in the country with an undergraduate program. Old Dominion has extensive experience in teaching simulation, and Old Dominion chooses AnyLogic.

Agent based modeling course at MIT


Nathaniel Osgood — an Associate Professor of University of Saskatchewan used AnyLogic to develop an MIT graduate-level course on agent-based modeling for health policy. Anyone involved in healthcare simulation will appreciate and value the variety of materials (screencast, video and audio): lectures, Java for AnyLogic tutorials and assignments.
