The new Big Book of Simulation Modeling


The new Big Book of Simulation Modeling

The key AnyLogic text is being updated and three new chapters are now online and available for download.

The 'Big Book of Simulation Modeling, Multimethod Modeling with AnyLogic 8', to give it its full name, is the go-to-book for those learning simulation modeling and AnyLogic. It is the only book to comprehensively present the three major paradigms in simulation modeling: agent-based, system dynamics, and discrete-event.

Suitable for both new users and professionals alike, the book provides practical step-by-step guides based on a variety of application areas. Read on, learn what's in the new chapters and download them to read.

How to build a stunning simulation


How to build a stunning simulation

The day AnyLogic presented their AnyLogic 8.5 updates I was very excited. In addition to the headline developments I found that they had added a 3D bike object. That reminded me of an old model of bikes that I had uploaded to RunTheModel, and that, in turn, made me think about developing an idea to create a similar model using the process modeling library. Would it be possible to create a discrete-event (DE) model that seems as if it was created entirely using agent-based (AB) modeling?
