How to take GIS data offline in AnyLogic


How to take GIS data offline in AnyLogic

Use GIS mapping and routing data when offline. Here is a how-to that shows how simulation models can run standalone and work when internet access is restricted, slow, or not possible at all. All the data needed can be downloaded and stored for AnyLogic to access offline.

This video demonstrates how to download GIS data for your simulation, including how to avoid large file sizes. The video also details file storage and how AnyLogic is configured to work with offline GIS data. Watch the video...

Oil production maintenance planning at Argentina’s largest company


Oil production maintenance planning at Argentina’s largest company

YPF is the largest oil producer in Argentina. It has 43% of the oil and gas production market and 58% of the gasoline market in the country. They hired consultants from Continente Siete to develop a decision support system (DSS) for determining work schedules.

The new maintenance planning system helped YPF save $18 million annually at the pilot implementation site. Forecasts suggest, the integration of the DSS with the work processes of other sites should save the company another $234 million per year.

Video presentations: Developments in simulation from the AnyLogic Conference ‘18


Video presentations: Developments in simulation from the AnyLogic Conference ‘18

Many interesting talks were given at the AnyLogic Conference, here they are, captured on video. Topics include: Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence, and digital twins, to name just a few. There is also a detailed introduction to the new Material Handling Library and best practices for Beginner, Advanced, and ‘Crack’ AnyLogic users.

These videos illustrate how AnyLogic simulation software is being applied across multiple industries to solve real-world problems and deliver the latest advances most effectively.

Deploy drones effectively


Deploy drones effectively

Drones, are developing rapidly; their capabilities are increasing and the costs reducing. Their increased use will lift the UK GDP by 2% according to a PwC report. Certainly, they hold great promise, reducing delivery times and cost, as Amazon is exploring, and even have the potential to revolutionize commuting — EHang’s Air Taxi or Uber’s Elevate.

Mosimtec is supporting drone/UAV network deployment through simulation. By exploring operational constraints in a virtual environment, it is possible to evaluate variables such as scheduling, maintenance, fleet size, and charging times. Review and video...
