Material Handling Library Tutorial: AGV, Cranes, and Conveyors


Material Handling Library Tutorial: AGV, Cranes, and Conveyors

AnyLogic Help has a new tutorial: Lead Acid Battery Production (Material Handling). By following the tutorial, you can learn how to model material handling processes using AnyLogic’s specialized Material Handling Library. The tutorial explains step-by-step how to create a model of a lead-acid battery production line. The model includes path-guided and free-space automatic guided vehicles (AGV), conveyors, and cranes.

AnyLogic Cloud API: New Possibilities


AnyLogic Cloud API: New Possibilities

Along with the release of AnyLogic 8.5, came the new features of AnyLogic Cloud API 8.5.0. Using the API, you can configure and remotely run simulation models in the cloud, as well as create user interfaces for them. You can find out about these and other features in our previous blog. In this post, the focus is on analyzing the new features and trying out the examples.

Follow the examples and find out how to use the AnyLogic Cloud API to remotely run experiments and create custom user interfaces.

JavaScript code snippets are provided so that you can reproduce the examples for yourself. Here's what you need to get started! Dive in!

AGVs and transporters – Learning the Material Handling Library (part 2)


AGVs and transporters – Learning the Material Handling Library (part 2)

AnyLogic 8.3 brought with it the Material Handling Library and, to teach you how to work with it, we launched a series of feature articles on the blog. They describe, with examples from real production, the main functions of the library and its components.

Following part 1, which focused on conveyors, this blog is about other ways to move goods — transporters. These include forklifts, as well as robotic and mechanical carts — automated guided vehicles (AGV).

How to take GIS data offline in AnyLogic


How to take GIS data offline in AnyLogic

Use GIS mapping and routing data when offline. Here is a how-to that shows how simulation models can run standalone and work when internet access is restricted, slow, or not possible at all. All the data needed can be downloaded and stored for AnyLogic to access offline.

This video demonstrates how to download GIS data for your simulation, including how to avoid large file sizes. The video also details file storage and how AnyLogic is configured to work with offline GIS data. Watch the video...
