How to win at AnyLogic on Stack Overflow

Which skill do you need again and again throughout your career? Without this skill, you will forever wonder why you do not progress, why others do not seem to be helpful. With it, things will flow easily, be fun and others will love to help you.

This skill is a secret superpower that some use to their advantage, while others never master it. This skill is especially important when learning technical skills such as simulation modelling, or AnyLogic in particular. Read on...

Product Delivery Reinforcement Learning


Product Delivery Reinforcement Learning

Accenture partnered with San Francisco based AI company Pathmind to investigate the potential of new reinforcement learning (RL) opportunities in simulation.

The results obtained were extremely good. The method produced a waiting time more than 4x shorter than the Nearest Agent heuristic.

In this blog post, Agustin Albinati summarizes the model, introduces the three key considerations when defining the neural net, and presents the results of his team's investigations. Linked at the end of the blog post is a step by step how-to with Pathmind. Read on!

AnyLogic Cloud API: Python


AnyLogic Cloud API: Python

Introducing the AnyLogic Cloud API and Python. In this blog, see how to use the AnyLogic Cloud API with Python and evaluate its capabilities with an example model.

Python’s popularity ranks just behind that of JavaScript as the world’s second most popular language on GitHub. It is a popular language for machine learning, data processing, and data presentation. For AnyLogic, the Pypeline connector library allows you to call Python from within a running AnyLogic simulation model — learn more in our Pypeline webinar video. In this blog we will focus on the AnyLogic Cloud API and Python.

Restricted Areas: How to control access for transporters (Part 6)


Restricted Areas: How to control access for transporters (Part 6)

A key part of the AnyLogic 8.6 update related to the Material Handling Library. Now the movement of transporters such as AGV can be restricted by area and access can be permitted conditionally: by transporter number, by schedule, by throughput, and more.

This technical blog guides you through how to use these restricted areas and demonstrates them with the help of a practical example model: Areas with Limited Access for Transporters.

Network port: Learning to use the Material Handling Library (Part 5)


Network port: Learning to use the Material Handling Library (Part 5)

Part five of our series on AnyLogic’s Material Handling Library, a library specifically designed to help model the work of factories, warehouses, and other facilities where goods are moved, processed, and sorted.

This blog demonstrates how to connect individual conveyors, and any processing stations on them, into a single conveyor network using the Network Port element.
