Pedestrian Flow is Crucial to Your Environment. Learn Why!


Pedestrian Flow is Crucial to Your Environment. Learn Why!

Production Modeling Corporation, an official partner of AnyLogic North America, invite you to an upcoming webinar, "Pedestrian Flow is Crucial to Your Environment. Learn Why!" Wednesday, September 21, 2016, at 11:00 am ET The webinar will help you plan and verify your facilities' strategy using AnyLogic's pedestrian library. Answering questions such as:

  • Does your facility (arena, hall, mall, stadium, store, cruise ship, etc.) have enough entrances, regular and emergency...

    Fluid Library Orientation Part 3 - Gas Station Model

    For those, who want to advance the skills in AnyLogic Fluid library, we are offering the 3rd part of the tutorial that will guide you through the main features of Fluid library and show you its advantages. In our previous post we built a model of chocolate factory, today you'll learn how to use the library for creating simple process charts and build a model of gas station. You'll also find out how to merge the flows in the Fluid library. Enjoy reading!

    Fluid Library Orientation Part 2 – Chocolate Production


    Fluid Library Orientation Part 2 – Chocolate Production

    Welcome to Part 2 of the Fluid Library orientation, which showcases an example model of chocolate production. Mainly, the model illustrates how to use different tanks, including Regular tank, Mix tank, and Process tank. Also, it shows how to design a branch fluid flowchart with Split, Merge, Select Input, and Select Output blocks. Transportation is performed with pipelines and conveyors. Finally, each 0.5 kilogram of prepared mass forms a chocolate bar, an agent of the Process Modeling Library.

    What’s new in AnyLogic 7.3? Fluid library Orientation, Part 1


    What’s new in AnyLogic 7.3? Fluid library Orientation, Part 1

    Striving to bring you increased capabilities and features, AnyLogic continues to broaden vertical solutions inside the product. AnyLogic 7.3 brings enhanced Fluid Library and new Road Traffic Library. In this post, I will highlight Fluid library, its functionality, and main features, with a brief walkthrough. The Fluid Library has been already used in real projects that prove its efficiency. It is Modeling and Optimization of Wells Scheduling for In Situ Oil Sands Production model, developed by Stream System. The simulation challenge was presented at AnyLogic Conference 2015. This post should help answer the following question: why and when I should use the Fluid library instead of Process Modeling library (and sometimes instead of System Dynamics).

    AnyLogic Featured in Rail Application Text Book


    AnyLogic Featured in Rail Application Text Book

    The Handbook of Operations Research Applications at Railroads (International Series in Operations Research & Management Science) is the first book to offer a complete spectrum of the role that operations research has played and can play in the improvement of North American freight railroads. It explores how decisions are made at railroads, contains examples of the mathematical programming formulations to the complex problems, and provides insights into real-world applications. AnyLogic is featured in two chapters: Simulation of Line of Road Operations and Terminal Simulation written by Roger Baugher, who has worked to apply Operations Research tools to railroads for over 40 years as both a railroad employee and consultant (B. Patty, Preface). Roger was instrumental in the development of Algorithmic Blocking and Classification (ABC) while at Norfolk Southern, was the first recipient of the Railroad Applications Special Interest Group (RASIG) Award for his contributions to OR in the railroad industry and is a Franz Edelman Laureate. In addition to Norfolk Southern, Roger Baugher applied his understanding of network optimization approaches to various forms of the transportation organizations, such as BNSF, American Airlines, Pacer Stacktrain, Conrail where he played an integral part in developing the Conrail Network Analysis Model (CNAM)

    What’s new in AnyLogic? Benefits of the built-in database.


    What’s new in AnyLogic? Benefits of the built-in database.

    Hi, everyone! You must have noticed that in the latest version of AnyLogic, AnyLogic 7.2, all models obtained a new object at the project tree — the Database object. What does this mean for developers? The built-in database feature helps to build the models that require a certain amount of external data for initialization and work. There are four primary benefits: 1. It removes extra connectivity layer between Excel/external DB and model. The database is now available in all editions, including free AnyLogic Personal Learning Edition.
