The Hidden Gems of AnyLogic
Benjamin Schumann, Ph. D., Senior Modeler at decisionLab

AnyLogic is an iceberg; 90% is hidden under the surface. The software boasts so many features that it is hard to keep track (let alone master them all). In this workshop, we will step back and revisit some hidden gems of AnyLogic that are easy to miss or forget. However, they can massively improve your modeling skills and end results. We will build a simple simulation model of the AnyLogic Conference (capacity TBA), that employs a number of these hidden gems, such as:

  • the magic lightbulb and how to interpret it
  • code complete & good naming conventions
  • the power of agent links
  • organize your model with Option Lists
  • tell your story with custom charts
  • do-it-yourself with custom experiments

About the Instructor: decisionLab designs and builds custom models and decision-support tools that help their clients to make evidence-based strategic, tactical and operational decisions. Benjamin, a significantly experienced AnyLogic user, works with diverse clients such as the MoD, Rolls-Royce, and GSK. He handles project delivery from start to end, managing team members, and client communication. Benjamin Schumann holds a Ph.D. in Complex Systems Simulation and developed an advanced aerospace design simulation model for the early design phase. It was applied for designing several real unmanned aircraft (the first 3D-printed aircraft on the planet), see New Scientist. Ben enjoyed a thorough training in simulation modeling thanks to his Grad School on Complex Systems Simulation.
