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.

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)

The Big Book of Simulation Modeling, Multimethod Modeling with AnyLogic 6- Reviews!

The Big Book of Simulation Modeling reviews are in and the results are outstanding! Requests have been flooding in for the only book that comprehensively presents all three methods, or paradigms, in simulation modeling: Agent Based, System Dynamics, and Discrete Event. By Hamid R. Darabi – “Wonderful!” January 2, 2014 “I bought the book the moment it was online on Amazon. There are a lot of choices you should make during developing a new model and you can learn the consequence of each from the father of AnyLogic. A must read for anyone who is serious about simulation and modeling using AnyLogic.” By Talal3439 - February 11, 2014 “In my opinion AnyLogic is the best simulation platform. If you are using Anylogic, this is the book that you need.” By Amazon Customer – “Excellent!” February 7, 2014 “Excellent book, must-read for AnyLogic computer modeling software users. Covers practical development of lot of models and modelling approaches.”

“The Big Book of Simulation Modeling" is the only book that comprehensively presents all three methods, or paradigms, in simulation modeling: Agent Based, System Dynamics, and Discrete Event. It explains how to choose the right constructs of the modeling language to create a representation of a real world system that is suitable for risk-free dynamic experiments. The book is based on the modeling languages supported by AnyLogic, the software tool that enables a modeler to utilize all three methods and is the only one with the capability to combine them together in a single model. Written by the creator of the software, this book is the most in-depth information resource on AnyLogic and utilization of multimethod modeling that currently exists. It covers topics from building simple Agent Based models with statecharts to developing data exchange with external programs.

The last (and the biggest) chapter of “The Big Book” available online

In the chapter "Agent based modeling. Technology overview", we present an overview of the technologies and techniques used in agent based modeling. Agent based models are very diverse in architecture, behavior types, number of agents, space types and so on. Other modeling methods (discrete event and system dynamics) are often used inside and outside agents. Although there is no special or standard language for agent based modeling, there are “design patterns” that are common to many agent based models. The chapter includes example models described in the step-by-step manner: Air Defense System, Wildfire (featuring combined discrete-continuous space), and also some discrete space classics: Schelling Segregation and Conway’s Game of Life.
