What’s new in AnyLogic 7? Usability Improvements

For the 2nd edition of the “What’s New in AnyLogic” blog, I would like to share with you one of the main priorities for our development team during their work on the new version. This most exciting advancement is around product usability. The new version contains many upgrades that fundamentally improve the modeling process in AnyLogic software. These enhancements make your everyday modeling easier, with fewer clicks, less typing and less time spent repeating actions. First, we tried to cut down on the amount of code you have to type while building a model. For example, now elements can be chosen by using drop-down lists, which significantly accelerates the workflow. To make a reference in a logical object (for example, Queue or Delay block) to a graphical object (for example, path, node, area), you only need to click on the object in the Graphical Editor. This allows for two quicker and easier ways to set links between elements.

What's New in AnyLogic 7? User Interface

What’s new in AnyLogic 7? You can get a brief overview of all the new features at www.anylogic.com, or check out our blog posts which will offer an in depth look at individual features. In this blog, you will become familiar with the new User Interface, which even at first glance looks transformed. Continue reading, and see what changes have been made, and why these changes make working in AnyLogic even simpler. The first thing you will notice when you launch AnyLogic 7, after the new logo and graphics, is the renewed positioning of workspace elements. The default settings place palletes on the left side of the screen and properties on the right side while, console and problems tabs are hidden.

Complete Workshop Video Available: “Introduction into Simulation Modeling for Business Applications”


The “Introduction into Simulation Modeling for Business Applications” workshop video is now available on our website. Dr. Andrei Borshchev, CEO of The AnyLogic Company, was the presenter. This workshop program introduces the audience to different simulation modeling approaches and shows examples of their use. It also illustrates the various features of AnyLogic 6 and reviews several real-life problems from different industries that were solved with the help of simulation modeling. The program is specifically designed for those who are new to simulation modeling to explain and demonstrate why simulation modeling is important and what kind of problems it helps to solve.
