Modeler’s Tips: Unreproducible Run Results 13.10.2015 Pavel Lebedev

We at the AnyLogic Support Team very often get asked by the users: what to do if I can not reproduce model results? That is why I decided to share the list of the most common sources of randomness in the model. So, if you run the model with the Fixed seed of random number generator, but the results are not reproducible, please check your model according to the list below. For all experiments: [...]

Improve Model Testing with One Simple Function 29.09.2015 Rene Reiter

Check out the latest blog post from my colleague and friend, Ben Schumann a senior modeler at decisionLab with a Ph.D. in Complex Systems Simulation. Moreover, as you know, Ben is a significantly experienced AnyLogic User, who works with diverse clients such as the MoD, Rolls-Royce or GSK. He handles project delivery from start to end, managing team members, and client communication. Dr. Schumann’s post asks a crucial question, “Are you testing your models?” If the answer is yes, he provides advice for better more efficient testing, and if not, let Ben share some advice on how. Go beyond traditional testing methods (i.e. visual, “traceIn” statements, analyze output data, apply dedicated unit testing) and create a structured, repeatable approach, or dedicated function. What Ben calls “The Magic Ingredient.” Find out about “The Magic Ingredient” and other ways to create personalized unit testing through Ben Schumann’s web page and the AnyLogic LinkedIn Users forum.

Cancer Cell Growth Using Game Theory in AnyLogic PLE 22.09.2015 Rene Reiter

At the beginning of 2015 we were proud to release a free version of the software called PLE, or Personal Learning Edition meant for learning, teaching, and self-study. Since the release, we have been extremely impressed with not only the increase in the number of users but the complex projects produced with the free version. Our latest discovery is from Mihir Paithane, a student in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Program at Mills E. Godwin High School in Richmond, Va. Mihir built a model to analyze the “Effect of Cellular Interactions on Cancer Cell Growth Using Evolutionary Game Theory.” In this experiment, game theory was used to assess the interactions between three cell phenotypes usually found in cancer. The three defined cells were autonomous growth cells, invasive and motile malignant cells, and cells that performed anaerobic glycolysis. Based on preset variables in the payoff matrix, analytical equations were deduced that allowed for the analysis of the proportion of autonomous growth and malignant cells in a tumor. AnyLogic was also used to simulate the interactions between cancerous and healthy cells.[...]

An Agent-Based Explanation for the Housing Plight of America’s Mentally Ill 15.09.2015 Rene Reiter

The largest public mental health facility in the United States is not a hospital; it is the Los Angeles County Jail. A Severely and Persistently Mentally Ill (SPMI) patient generally defines someone with a diagnosis of Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, or Major Depressive Disorder, and this group constitutes about 1.7% of the US population. To better understand the condition and possible improvements, IBM Global Research and Otsuka Pharmaceuticals used an agent-based approach to model the SPMI living situations over the second half of the 20th century. Kyle Johnson, Managing Consultant with IBM Global Business Services presented this project at the 2014 AnyLogic Conference. He works within the Advanced Analytics and Optimization branch of IBM BAO.
