Agent Based Models Trending at WinterSim 2013 06.03.2014 Rene Reiter

Industry leaders are realizing the benefits of Agent Based Modeling with AnyLogic software. In the dynamic and complex market environments of telecommunications, insurance, epidemiology, and healthcare, consumers make choices based on the characteristics of the consumers themselves and other factors that are best captured by the agent based modeling paradigm. Individual-centric data from Customer Relationship Management systems can be used to parameterize the model agents. The number of papers published for WinterSim 2013 using Agent Based Models nearly doubled from that of 2012. See how industry leaders are putting CRM, ERP and other big data to work using Agent Based Models.[...]

Healthcare Decision-Support by Hybrid Simulation – Mobile Stroke Units 18.02.2014 Rene Reiter

The University of Erlangen-Nuremburg Computer Networks and Communication Systems group specializes in the simulation of large-scaled complex systems such as healthcare, automotive, industry and energy. One of the latest projects concerned the possibility and location of Mobile Stroke Units (MSU’s) due to the increase of stroke victims in an aging population. A stroke is typically caused by Thrombosis and should be treated with thrombolysis. Stroke causes severe disability and produces high costs for care and rehab if not treated quickly.

GIS Alternatives for AnyLogic 20.01.2014 Anatoly Zherebtsov

Hello Everyone! At The AnyLogic Conference 2013 I announced results of my recent research regarding GIS alternatives for AnyLogic and would like to share my experience. Using open source projects, a small amount of Java code and publicly available GIS data services, I was able to: - Display Tile map on model presentation with pan and zoom. Downloaded tiles are cached in model folder. - Switch different tile sources in runtime. - Display animation of agents living in GIS space shown on top of map. - Perform geocoding/reverse geocoding by parsing http query response. - Get routing data by parsing http query response.[...]

"The Big Book of Simulation Modeling" available now! 19.12.2013 Rene Reiter

“The Big Book of Simulation Modeling" is the only book that comprehensively presents all three methods, or paradigms, in simulation modeling: Agent Based, System Dynamics, and Discrete Event. It explains how to choose the right constructs of the modeling language to create a representation of a real world system that is suitable for risk-free dynamic experiments. The book is based on the modeling languages supported by AnyLogic, the software tool that enables a modeler to utilize all three methods and is the only one with the capability to combine them together in a single model. Written by the creator of the software, this book is the most in-depth information resource on AnyLogic and utilization of multimethod modeling that currently exists. It covers topics from building simple Agent Based models with statecharts to developing data exchange with external programs. [...]
