A new chapter from the Big Book of Simulation Modeling: Multimethod Modeling with AnyLogic 8 is now online and available for download.
The book explores the three main methods in simulation modeling: agent-based, system dynamics, and discrete-event. Various examples and step-by-step guides for solving complex business challenges will be useful for both beginners and advanced users.
You can find previous chapter releases for the new Big Book in our earlier blogposts.
The updated chapter in this blogpost is about the AnyLogic Rail Library. It contains a detailed overview of the Library's elements and step-by-step guides to help you get going with the most common simulation models.
With it you can easily build complex models of classification yards, rail yards of large plants, railway stations, rail car repair yards, subways, airport shuttle trains, rail in container terminals and factories, trams, or even rail transportation in a coal mine. You can also seamlessly connect the Rail Library's elements to other AnyLogic libraries' elements. [Download]
