Automated guided vehicles are widely used in manufacturing and warehousing to move items around. A simple example model combines various AnyLogic libraries and modeling approaches to simulate the AGV charging process. Read through and don’t forget to open the model in AnyLogic software to follow along with the example.
Revolving doors are the perfect solution for modern day living. They allow for the movement of people in and out, while maintaining the ideal climate inside the building. See how easy it is to make the most of a revolving door using AnyLogic simulation software.
Urban design projects presented as physical models usually look nice and detailed, but when implemented they may reveal unexpected problems. Even if such models match the actual layouts, some dynamic factors that may affect the design get left out. Using simulation, you can consider the dynamics, which gives you a more complete picture of the system's performance over time.
Simulation models are based on data, and when you import data from an external database, there’s an efficient approach that won’t affect model performance. Data from MS Excel/MS Access/MS SQL Server can be imported in a couple of clicks but what if it is stored in MySQL or PostgreSQL? Follow our guide and learn how to connect data in PostgreSQL with an AnyLogic model to create a schedule.
Uncertainty is an essential part of our everyday lives. And when we build simulation models, we want them to reflect the real world as closely as possible. For that, you'd need to include randomness in your simulation. Learn how to set randomness in AnyLogic models, what generates random results, what AnyLogic pre-set probability distributions are, and find helpful resources on the topic.
Anyone with programming experience can build models, but not every programmer can become a good simulation modeler. In this article, we will detail what a simulation model developer does, what you need to know to become one, and where to find learning resources.
A guest post from Jaco-Ben Vosloo and Vitor Lemos, co-founders of The AnyLogic Modeler. While you may have heard of Python scripting in AnyLogic, Java is the original, and currently the only fully-supported, scripting language. Knowing a little Java can really level up your simulation modeling in AnyLogic. The course introduced here is a new way to gain that knowledge.
Which skill do you need again and again throughout your career? Without this skill, you will forever wonder why you do not progress, why others do not seem to be helpful. With it, things will flow easily, be fun and others will love to help you. This skill is a secret superpower that some use to their advantage, while others never master it. This skill is especially important when learning technical skills such as simulation modelling, or AnyLogic in particular. Read on...
