Pros
I liked the design, it's modern. I liked the functionality and the help team, they do their best to help me get what I wanted.

I am impressed by the vast libraries the software has for different functionalities and the applications these have between themselves. Using the software for my research project has been a pleasure.

The software has very wide functionality and is pretty intuitive. I love that there is a free version that meets most needs - so that investing in the professional version guarantees you'd use it.

Cons
My computer often lags to load the files. I also dislike that I can only open files through AnyLogic, not by just clicking a file and launching the software.

Problems with Java is difficult to trace. Sometimes the program crashed or froze.

If I open it up on a laptop it is extremely slow and lags; almost impossible to use.

Anylogic is excellent for simulation

Reviewed a year ago

We are using AnyLogic to model our cross docks and yard operations. I love using this software for this purpose. The support for modeling "pedestrian" like congestion/etc on our docks and yards is amazing. I know of no other simulation modeling environment that does this.

Pros

AnyLogic is an incredibly flexible platform for creating very sophisticated simulation models. I love it's integration with the Java programming language. Also, I like how they separate the visualization from the logic of the modeling.

Cons

To do all that AnyLogic does, it is an extremely complicated modeling tool. It takes a while to learn.

Expensive but also the best

Reviewed a year ago

I absolutely love this software. I was becoming jaded in academia until I was sent on a training to learn to use it and it's just so versatile that it makes me have faith in academia again because we don't all have to use one hammer and make everything a nail. It allows me to be creative and artistic in ways other packages don't, but it could use more ways for sure (such as in aligning text or objects more easily or better graphics).

Pros

It's the most versatile of the software packages for systems modeling by a landslide. From the methods that can be implemented to the ability to connect or interface with other programs and tools, it is the complete package. Most others only focus on one tool or maybe two (such as most system dynamics software).

Cons

Learning to code is very hard for it and they need better examples and more support. They also could really work on the graphics or at least ability for users to connect to make their own graphics. The price is so high that it's very hard for me as a junior academic to get someone to fund even the university edition and has always been an issue. I would absolutely love to be getting to use this tool more but the costs and time it takes for me to code as someone that's not trained in the field are costly.

Movable Wind Turbine Modelling

Reviewed 2 months ago

I have reached to a promising stage of research through the software modelling and simulation.

Pros

The capability of simulation which has enabled me to prove the adaptability of movable wind turbines in offshore locations.

Cons

Nothing so far as the Software has proven to be very productive

I don't know what this means

Reviewed 2 years ago

i am currently working on my thesis on Anylogic. Being a student, I cant afford to get professional version as it is too expensive. I would like that the price be a little lower. I would want the help directory of Anylogic to get better - specially with the various functions.

Pros

I can create so many different sorts of models. You get learning edition for free with alot of features.

Cons

It has nothing on internet for problems that we might face. There are many restrictions on it. The help guide is also of not too much use. Its expensive. The type conversion is such a pain in functions.

Amazing and Versatile Software that fills everyone's needs

Reviewed 4 months ago
Pros

AnyLogic is very appealing to me because of the ease of use. I have been using AnyLogic for the past half year now and it has been incredibly easy for me to do my work. I use AnyLogic for simulation modeling and I find the software very diverse and easily applicable to any business problem.

Cons

The only drawback about AnyLogic I have is the decently high learning curve. AnyLogic takes a bit of time to learn to use to its maximum capacity but once you have an understanding, you can do virtually anything with the software.
