The Big Book of Simulation Modeling – new chapter

A new chapter is now online and available for download.

The 'Big Book of Simulation Modeling, Multimethod Modeling with AnyLogic 8', is one of the key resources for both beginners and professionals in simulation modeling. It contains various examples and detailed explanation of the three major methods in simulation modeling: agent-based, system dynamics, and discrete-event.

The new chapter dives deep into the AnyLogic Rail Library, its components, and opportunities for model builders.

Getting started with material handling – webinar and MHL Pocket Handbook


Getting started with material handling – webinar and MHL Pocket Handbook

A new way to get started with AnyLogic’s Material Handling Library is now available — the MHL Pocket Handbook. At our Planning & Optimizing AGVs and Conveyors webinar with DSE Consulting, June 2020, attendees were introduced to this new interactive tool for learning MHL blocks. Both the pocket handbook and the webinar also provide sneak peeks at some upcoming AnyLogic 8.6 features.

Webinar host Aanand Davé, managing director of DSE Consulting, introduced in-house DSE simulation specialist, Kelvin Yeung, and Jock Richardson, director at agri-tech company Growpura. Together, they demonstrated material handling simulation using AnyLogic and highlighted its use in industry with a model of Growpura’s large-scale hydroponics setup.

How to build a stunning simulation


How to build a stunning simulation

The day AnyLogic presented their AnyLogic 8.5 updates I was very excited. In addition to the headline developments I found that they had added a 3D bike object. That reminded me of an old model of bikes that I had uploaded to RunTheModel, and that, in turn, made me think about developing an idea to create a similar model using the process modeling library. Would it be possible to create a discrete-event (DE) model that seems as if it was created entirely using agent-based (AB) modeling?

The industry leading OptQuest simulation optimization engine from OptTek is integrated with AnyLogic to further enhance analysis and decision making with simulation modeling.

The recent release of AnyLogic 8.5 included the latest OptQuest optimizer. Read on and learn from Dr. Ben Thengvall about how to quickly determine optimal parameters for your simulation models with OptQuest.

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.
