Crowd safety at Hajj – Simulation modeling


Crowd safety at Hajj – Simulation modeling

Emergency evacuation planning for mass gatherings is essential public safety and security work for authorities and can help save lives. Imran Mahmood and Muhammad Haris of the National University of Sciences and Technology, Pakistan, and Hessam Sarjoughian of Arizona State University, USA, have used an AnyLogic based crowd simulation and analysis framework to analyze emergency evacuation strategies for one of the world’s greatest mass gatherings: Hajj.

How a digital twin can help decision making


How a digital twin can help decision making

Digital twins are part of Industry 4.0. How are they being used on automobile production lines? Here we investigate how a digital twin is made and used in the automotive industry.

One of the world’s largest capital goods companies, CNHi, wanted to evaluate Industry 4.0 technologies. It chose its IVECO production plant in Suzzara, Italy. Fair Dynamics were contracted proposed a digital twin. Read on and discover how maintenance costs can be reduced with a digital twin — Production line downtime was shown in a study of over 100 automotive executives to cost an average of $22,000 per minute.

Oil production maintenance planning at Argentina’s largest company


Oil production maintenance planning at Argentina’s largest company

YPF is the largest oil producer in Argentina. It has 43% of the oil and gas production market and 58% of the gasoline market in the country. They hired consultants from Continente Siete to develop a decision support system (DSS) for determining work schedules.

The new maintenance planning system helped YPF save $18 million annually at the pilot implementation site. Forecasts suggest, the integration of the DSS with the work processes of other sites should save the company another $234 million per year.

Video presentations: Developments in simulation from the AnyLogic Conference ‘18


Video presentations: Developments in simulation from the AnyLogic Conference ‘18

Many interesting talks were given at the AnyLogic Conference, here they are, captured on video. Topics include: Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence, and digital twins, to name just a few. There is also a detailed introduction to the new Material Handling Library and best practices for Beginner, Advanced, and ‘Crack’ AnyLogic users.

These videos illustrate how AnyLogic simulation software is being applied across multiple industries to solve real-world problems and deliver the latest advances most effectively.

The development of Industry 4.0 in Germany: an interview with Yuri Toluyev


The development of Industry 4.0 in Germany: an interview with Yuri Toluyev

Industry 4.0 was the subject of Yuri Toluyev’s plenary presentation at the IMMOD simulation modeling conference in Saint Petersburg. He described how new approaches to enterprise development, united by the concept of Industry 4.0, are driving technological development.

AnyLogic attended the event and interviewed Toluyev about Industry 4.0, its development, and its implementation. Interesting and informative, read on for Yuri Toluyev’s Industry 4.0 insight...

Deploy drones effectively


Deploy drones effectively

Drones, are developing rapidly; their capabilities are increasing and the costs reducing. Their increased use will lift the UK GDP by 2% according to a PwC report. Certainly, they hold great promise, reducing delivery times and cost, as Amazon is exploring, and even have the potential to revolutionize commuting — EHang’s Air Taxi or Uber’s Elevate.

Mosimtec is supporting drone/UAV network deployment through simulation. By exploring operational constraints in a virtual environment, it is possible to evaluate variables such as scheduling, maintenance, fleet size, and charging times. Review and video...
