Using the New AnyLogic Material Handling Library and Running Complex Simulation Experiments in the Cloud

Dr. Andrei Borshchev, CEO & Nikolay Churkov, Head of Software Development at The AnyLogic Company, and Arash Mahdavi, Simulation Modeling Consultant, AnyLogic North America

Andrei Borshchev

The workshop is built around the new features of AnyLogic 8.3 coming April 2018. We will demonstrate the new AnyLogic Material Handling Library and show how to model and simulate sophisticated conveyor networks and AGVs. We will also showcase the new AnyLogic browser-based front-end that replaces the Java implementation, explaining how to take advantage of AnyLogic Cloud when running complex multiple-run experiments such as Monte-Carlo and Parameter Variation. As usual, we will answer attendee questions and go through some useful how-to’s. Watch>>

anyLogistix: From Supply Chain Optimization to Dynamic Simulation

Timofey Popkov, Director of Business Development at The AnyLogic Company

Timofey Popkov

anyLogistix combines analytical optimization together with unmatched simulation technology for precise end-to-end supply chain analysis. While Network Optimization has been used for decades to design supply chains, Dynamic Simulation is still a “know unknown” in the area. During this workshop you will learn how you can benefit from using these approaches in unison to innovate your supply chain — how to convert optimization results into simulation scenarios and realize the advantages of simulation technology.

Best practices in AnyLogic

Benjamin Schumann, Ph.D., Senior Analytics Fellow

Benjamin Schumann

After uncovering the hidden gems of AnyLogic at the last conference, Ben continues his quest to improve your AnyLogic experience. This time, let's explore his list of best practices for model-building, based on his years of experience. Make these your habit and you will avoid sweat, tears and unnecessary delays. As usual, any skill level will benefit:

  • For beginners, we will delve into the core steps you should follow to ensure your model doesn't crumble over time.
  • For advanced users, we will define habits to follow that will keep you sane.
  • And for experts, we will introduce some cool ideas around co-development and proper testing.


Thank you to our Sponsors
