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.

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. Check it out!

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).
