AnyLogic 7.1 Demo: Linking Maps and Simulation 24.12.2014 Rene Reiter

Supporting all three modeling methods, AnyLogic is the most functional software on the market. With the new GIS map features, its capabilities are beyond your expectations. Watch this video to see how easy you can build a transportation model with GIS maps in AnyLogic 7.1. The simple click by click instructions begin with building a flow chart, finding a city via the built in search engine and sending a truck from San Francisco to Phoenix, no coding needed! Search for pharmacies, stores, bus stops and more, then convert the objects in to model markup elements in just two clicks. Plus zoom and pan can be used while building and running the model. You can view these and a detailed description of all features available in AnyLogic 7.1, on our website.

Kuehne+Nagel Increase Equipment Utilization from 58% to 94% 01.12.2014 Rene Reiter

Kuehne+Nagel, a leading global provider of logistics solutions assisted a large warehouse in finding the best algorithm for multi-order picking. The large warehouse processes approximately 13,000 orders or 750 picking cartons per day. Eight cartons are positioned on each trolley, but only four can be filled simultaneously due to weighing scales used to increase order picking accuracy. This and random carton placement along the pickers route means a strict algorithm is necessary for building optimal picking tours.
