New Book on Supply Chain Management Is Now Available 05.09.2016 Egor Yakovlev

For those interested in supply chain and operations management, we recommend a new book - "Global Supply Chain and Operations Management: A Decision-Oriented Introduction to the Creation of Value". The co-author, Dmitry Ivanov, is a professor for International Supply Chain Management at Berlin School of Economics and Law. He is also an author and co-author of 250 publications. You can download one of his books on decision-making in supply chain and manufacturing with AnyLogic optimization and simulation software on our website. The new book is aimed mainly at students and academics, but it might definitely interest those who work in logistics and operations management. This book presents global supply chain and operations management from a comprehensive perspective, focusing on the operational roles in the networks and presenting the quantitative and organizational methods needed to plan and control the material, information and financial flows in the supply chain.

AnyLogic 7 in Three Days, Available Now in Portuguese 16.02.2016 Rene Reiter

AnyLogic 7 in Three Days, the first practical textbook on AnyLogic 7 from AnyLogic developers, is now available in Portuguese through Amazon.com. The book is written by Ilya Grigoryev, Head of Training at AnyLogic and the author of AnyLogic documentation and AnyLogic training courses. Consider this, your first step in learning AnyLogic software. The book is structured around three examples: a consumer market model, an epidemiology model, and an airport model. Some theory behind all three modeling methods is also provided in the book. Through reading the book and completing the exercises, you will create models of pedestrians and discrete events using business process flowcharts, draw diagrams of stock and flow, and build agent-based models. You'll find AnyLogic 7 in Three Days to be the perfect accompaniment to the FREE Personal Learning Edition (PLE) of AnyLogic software. Whether you are a commercial user, student, or professor teaching AnyLogic in the classroom, let this be your guide.

"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. [...]

The last (and the biggest) chapter of “The Big Book” available online 10.09.2013 Andrei Borshchev

In the chapter "Agent based modeling. Technology overview", we present an overview of the technologies and techniques used in agent based modeling. Agent based models are very diverse in architecture, behavior types, number of agents, space types and so on. Other modeling methods (discrete event and system dynamics) are often used inside and outside agents. Although there is no special or standard language for agent based modeling, there are “design patterns” that are common to many agent based models. The chapter includes example models described in the step-by-step manner: Air Defense System, Wildfire (featuring combined discrete-continuous space), and also some discrete space classics: Schelling Segregation and Conway’s Game of Life.

"Multimethod Modeling" - a new chapter of "The Big Book of AnyLogic" is out 07.02.2013 Andrei Borshchev

Some citations: "Frequently, the problem cannot completely conform to one modeling paradigm. Using a traditional single-method tool, the modeler inevitably either starts using workarounds (unnatural and cumbersome language constructs), or just leaves part of the problem outside the scope of the model (treats it as exogenous). If our goal is to capture business, economic, and social systems in their interaction, this becomes a serious limitation."

Three new book chapters 01.06.2012 Irina Pavlova

Three new chapters have been added to the Big Book of AnyLogic: The three methods in simulation modeling, Exchanging data with external world, 3D animation. These chapters show a modeler how to differentiate and successfully use the 3 major simulation methods, how to create high quality interactive 3D animations, and how to build data exchange interfaces to the external world.
