Case Studies

  • AnyLogic Tackles Eiffel Tower Crowds
    The Eiffel Tower operating company (SETE) used AnyLogic software to optimize the flow of tourists at the monument. With its help the engineers increased the number of visitors without redesign, but with people movement control.
  • Bullwhip Effect in Semiconductor Supply Chain
    The supply chain management at Infineon, a huge semiconductor manufacturer, wanted to investigate the bullwhip effect in their market in order to decrease expenses and better forecast market behavior. They used AnyLogic software to build a model of a supply chain – from raw materials to the market.
  • Choosing the Best Concept for a Passenger Rail Car
    The largest CIS rail car building facility, Tver Carriage Works, needed to choose the best passenger rail car concept for a city train. The plant needed to compare passenger entrance/exit times during peak loads for concepts that had different door amounts and widths, and then choose the best variant. They contracted ITS Consulting to perform this task. The consultants found pedestrian simulation modeling to be the best possible instrument to provide a solution.
  • Choosing the Right Warehouse Layout for a Leading FMCG Retailer
    One of the biggest FMCG retailers in Eastern Europe supplies to several hundred shops, across multiple regions, through a single distribution center. The company planned to change the arrangement of pallet racks and conveyors in the center. To evaluate the capacity of the new layout and to measure the effectiveness of the warehouse, they decided to have the AnyLogic Company’s consulting department build a simulation model of the warehouse.
  • Crossing the English Channel with AnyLogic
    AREP, the subsidiary of «SNCF Gares & Connexions», developed a simulation model which optimized the utilizing of the Transmanche Terminal of Paris’ Gare du nord. The main goal was to reduce the waiting time upstream and at the points of control of passengers. The model enabled to locate, value and represent the possible dysfunctions in these areas.
  • Distribution Network Planning & Inventory Optimization Supported by Simulation
    Diageo is a British multinational alcoholic beverages company. Diageo Russia is one of Russia’s top five wholesale alcoholic beverage distributors, which is traditionally a low margin business where the bottom line is sensitive to the customer service level and high logistics costs. Diageo sought assistance from the consulting company Amalgama, LLC when they experienced an increase in sales volume, but failed to realize larger profits due to logistics costs per unit.
  • Evaluating Container ETA Data Flow Introduction in the Port of Hamburg
    Researchers from the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany, worked to identify whether the introduction of each container’s ETA would improve the situation with capacity utilization among the supply chain actors in the port of Hamburg, one of world’s top 20 ports in terms of container traffic.
  • Internal Rail Logistics Simulation for the Port of Le Havre
    The port of Le Havre, France, needed support for construction of new multimodal terminal. The issue that required simulation was supporting containers transfer between rail trains/river barges and other existing terminals, which transferred these containers to and from sea transport.
  • Modeling the Cladding Leak Detection Shop of a Nuclear Reactor's Module
    The cladding leak detection shop is part of an automated line of fuel assembly production. Leak control is based on heating the fuel element groups. While warming up, defective units eject the control gas, which is detected by a leak locator. The defected group is divided into two parts. Each part is screened in the same way until the leaking fuel element is found.
  • Optimizing French Railways
    The operator of the railway network of the country wanted to know if rail cargo transportation could compete with auto truck transportation. They wanted to make truck-rail-truck transportation more effective.
