A key part of the AnyLogic 8.6 update related to the Material Handling Library. Now the movement of transporters such as AGV can be restricted by area and access can be permitted conditionally: by transporter number, by schedule, by throughput, and more. This technical blog guides you through how to use these restricted areas and demonstrate them with the help of a practical example model: Areas with Limited Access for Transporters.
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. Ready to level up? Then let's dive right in!
Watch how to use AnyLogic process simulation software to design multi-level facilities in manufacturing, healthcare, warehouse, and other models. To continue with production process modeling, check out our manufacturing simulation webinar recording.
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?

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!
Along with the release of AnyLogic 8.5, came the new features of AnyLogic Cloud API 8.5.0. Using the API, you can configure and remotely run simulation models in the cloud, as well as create user interfaces for them. You can find out about these and other features in our previous blog. In this post, the focus is on analyzing the new features and trying out the examples. Follow the examples and find out how to use the AnyLogic Cloud API to remotely run experiments and create custom user...
