Paradigm-Free Modeling 02.11.2016 Rene Reiter

Are you just becoming familiar with Multimethod or Hybrid Modeling? A long-time AnyLogic software modeler, Dr. Benjamin Schumann from decisionLab would like to introduce you to the notion of “paradigm-free modeling”; modeling without the limitations of a specific language such as DE, SD or AB. Dr. Schumann elaborated on this concept in a recent blog post where he discussed the future of modeling, suggesting a new mentality is required for simulation modeling to become truly mainstream. Dr. Schumann came across the idea of paradigm-free modeling through Stefan Bengtsson, a very experienced modeler from Sweden who has represented multiple commercial and academic organizations. Some examples of his work: System Thinking and Simulation Presentation , Modeling Applications in Healthcare Video. [...]

Webinar: Multimethod Modeling with a Customer Satisfaction Scenario 11.08.2015 Rene Reiter

The benefits of multimethod modeling take center stage as we build a Customer Satisfaction Model, which includes, service interruptions, downtime, and processing time. Also built into the model are varying levels of customer satisfaction based on performance and word of mouth factors. Join us for the “Multimethod Modeling with a Customer Satisfaction Scenario” Webinar August 13th at 12 Noon CST for a comprehensive “how-to” build multimethod modeling with true problem-solving and decision-making capabilities.

AnyLogic 7 in Three Days: Paperback Edition Available 28.01.2015 Rene Reiter

AnyLogic 7 in Three Days, the first practical textbook on AnyLogic 7 from AnyLogic developers, is now available in paperback 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 to 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, but if you are looking for a deeper dive into the methodologies, check out The Big Book of Simulation Modeling by Andrei Borshchev, The AnyLogic Company CEO. 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.

Shipyard Proves Order Fulfillment Capabilities and Gains Visibility into Production Facility and Distribution 24.09.2014 Rene Reiter

Admiralty Shipyards JSC, is one of the oldest and largest shipyards in the Baltic region, serving government and commercial customers world-wide for more than 300 years. The shipyard's military orders are primarily submarines, but also include non-military repair and the modernization and construction of other underwater technical innovations for oceanic development. Faced with a large order for diesel powered submarines, Admiralty Shipyards JSC (JSC) must evaluate whether the current production facilities can fulfill the order, and if not, what amount can be produced by the year 2016. JSC is also seeking confirmation that an additional production facility will not be needed to complete the order.[...]

Why Grow Your Modeling and Simulation Tool Box? 24.07.2014 Rene Reiter

Solving every problem is made easier with multiple tools. The AnyLogic modeling and simulation environment gives you multiple modeling languages, for better, more profitable decision making, but which is the best for your individual needs? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Utilizing AnyLogic to solve your complex business problems, will give you a number of tools, combination of tools, and the guidance to choose wisely. Real world problems rarely conform to one modeling language. Continuing to develop models with one methodology, or using software that only supports one method will limit the breadth and depth of your projects and cause unneeded complications. In these cases, a modeler will have to introduce workarounds, and unnatural elements like variables, blocks, and states, making the development process more problematic. This also makes understanding the model structure more difficult for other developers (and even yourself), increasing the unlikeliness that the model’s parts would be reused.
