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.
