The Big Book of Simulation Modeling, Multimethod Modeling with AnyLogic 6- Reviews! 25.02.2014 Rene Reiter

The Big Book of Simulation Modeling reviews are in and the results are outstanding! Requests have been flooding in for the only book that comprehensively presents all three methods, or paradigms, in simulation modeling: Agent Based, System Dynamics, and Discrete Event. By Hamid R. Darabi – “Wonderful!” January 2, 2014 “I bought the book the moment it was online on Amazon. There are a lot of choices you should make during developing a new model and you can learn the consequence of each from the father of AnyLogic. A must read for anyone who is serious about simulation and modeling using AnyLogic.” By Talal3439 - February 11, 2014 “In my opinion AnyLogic is the best simulation platform. If you are using Anylogic, this is the book that you need.” By Amazon Customer – “Excellent!” February 7, 2014 “Excellent book, must-read for AnyLogic computer modeling software users. Covers practical development of lot of models and modelling approaches.” [...]

"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. [...]

Fall Events in North America: INFORMS Annual Meeting 2013 and Others 23.10.2013 Scott Hebert

Over the past few months the AnyLogic North America team have been busy attending many customer events and conferences and spreading the good word about AnyLogic. AnyLogic North America attended the Annual INFORMS conference in Minneapolis, MN at the beginning of October. We maintained a high visibility level through two workshops (one workalong, and one demonstration) and our state-of-the-art booth. Indeed, our booth received very complimentary remarks from several of the other vendors for its elegance and messaging. [...]

Why do universities value AnyLogic? 18.10.2013 Alena Beloshapko

Today, modeling and simulation are in high demand. Surprisingly, there are few universities that have programs designed for them. In 2000, Old Dominion University was the first in the United States to offer a Ph.D. in modeling and simulation. Now it is the only university in the country with an undergraduate program. Old Dominion has extensive experience in teaching simulation, and Old Dominion chooses AnyLogic. [...]

A modern alternative to simulation discovered? 09.10.2013 Stepan Egorov

To continue on the topic of pedestrian modeling: recently, I heard the news that the new terminal being built in the St. Petersburg airport will be tested using a free labor force, or in other words, volunteers. Actually, the volunteers will test the terminal’s operations and on-ground facilities by acting like passengers. It was interesting to find that the London Heathrow and Dubai airports are using this practice right now too. Here in St. Pete, they gathered more than 5,000 volunteers, to come to the terminal and walk around, jostle to check-in desks, race up the down-moving escalators, get bored in queues to passport controls, etc. I suspect that the volunteers will be watched by engineers, who will be counting the number of injuries per minute. That’s how airport authorities are going to see if everything is OK with the terminal.

City Rail Transfer Hub Simulation 24.09.2013 Stepan Egorov

How can an overpopulated city fight traffic congestion? Examples from many current metropolitan areas show that, apart from subways and buses, city railways can greatly improve traffic situations. Probably the most famous city rail system is the S-Bahn in Germany. In North America, one of the more well-known examples is the BeltLine in Atlanta, Georgia.

AnyLogic 7 Alpha Presented at Simulation Events in the UK 24.09.2013 Alena Beloshapko

This September the simulation society in UK enjoyed two meaningful events – OR55 Annual Conference and 8th EUROSIM Congress. The first one is more attended by practitioners and the second one is a more academic event. At both conferences people were very excited about AnyLogic 7, although there were concerns by the move towards a wizard based system and how it might damage the 'power' of AnyLogic. We are keen to assure you that it is a baseless fear! Wizards are aimed to facilitate the learning curve for those who are new to the software. If you do not need Wizard’s assistance, you can easily skip this option and continue creating models via regular interface.
