Simulation modeling in project management


Simulation modeling in project management

Imagine that you need to create a computer program. To do this, you have to hire developers, designers and testers, organize processes, draw up a development plan, constantly evaluate the performance of colleagues, and so on. The task quickly becomes complex. What are your chances of success if you are not a professional?

Here, the downloadable book chapter explores how to use simulation in project management. It gives practical examples from a logistics service provider and a construction company to support its ideas and the demo models from the chapter are open access, so that you can download them, disassemble, and consolidate your knowledge in practice.

The art of process-centric modeling – an AnyLogic educational textbook


The art of process-centric modeling – an AnyLogic educational textbook

This free educational textbook uses AnyLogic to teach the art of process centric modeling. Also known as discrete-event modeling, process-centric modeling is good for capturing business processes, where systems can be described as a sequence of actions. Capturing a system in a process-centric model is not always straightforward but, using clear examples and the simulation modeling tool AnyLogic, this book teaches you how.

AnyLogic 7 in Three Days in Japanese

AnyLogic 7 in Three Days, the practical book on AnyLogic 7 from AnyLogic developers, is now available for FREE in Japanese! The book is written by Ilya Grigoryev the author of AnyLogic training courses. The book is designed for self-education or university environment and might be considered as the first learning guide to AnyLogic software. The book is structured around four examples from different areas, where simulation modeling could be implemented: manufacturing, healthcare, marketing research and pedestrian flows. Being practice-oriented, the book also contains some theory behind all four application areas. The book is available in Portuguese, Chinese and English.

New Book on Supply Chain Management Is Now Available


New Book on Supply Chain Management Is Now Available

For those interested in supply chain and operations management, we recommend a new book - "Global Supply Chain and Operations Management: A Decision-Oriented Introduction to the Creation of Value". The co-author, Dmitry Ivanov, is a professor for International Supply Chain Management at Berlin School of Economics and Law. He is also an author and co-author of 250 publications. You can download one of his books on decision-making in supply chain and manufacturing with AnyLogic optimization and simulation software on our website. The new book is aimed mainly at students and academics, but it might definitely interest those who work in logistics and operations management. This book presents global supply chain and operations management from a comprehensive perspective, focusing on the operational roles in the networks and presenting the quantitative and organizational methods needed to plan and control the material, information and financial flows in the supply chain.

AnyLogic 7 in Three Days, Portuguese Translation - FREE


AnyLogic 7 in Three Days, Portuguese Translation - FREE

AnyLogic 7 in Three Days, the first practical textbook on AnyLogic 7 from AnyLogic developers, has a Portuguese version available to download at no cost to you. The book is written by Ilya Grigoryev, Head of Training at AnyLogic and the author of AnyLogic documentation and AnyLogic training courses. Consider this, your first step in learning AnyLogic software. The book is structured around three examples: a consumer market model, an epidemiology model, and an airport model. Some theory behind all three modeling methods is also provided in the book. Through reading the book and completing the exercises, you will create models of pedestrians and discrete events using business process flowcharts, draw diagrams of stock and flow, and build agent-based models. On the Portuguese landing page, also find additional learning material. A recorded webinar is available (in English) that focuses on key new AnyLogic 7 features: extending GIS maps by adding additional shapefiles, converting shapefiles into GIS routes, and the Fluid Library.
