AnyLogic to Simulate Business process, Technical process

2020-08-10

Designed network of sales i.e. warehousing, DCs, and fleets in accordance to meet the optimum level by fulfilling a demand from a specific DCs,warehouse by lower cost, Which plants to be operational to meet the specific regions demand to minimize the transport cost, in manufacturing designed capacity planning model with many machines made and handmade process, by inputting the cycle time, throughput time and their capacity, to address the man, machine are enough and address bottle necks in manufacturing.

Pros

Tool to simulate the business processes including finances, supply chain and even technical like manufacturing or mechanical movements, it gives you clear direction of business process on your screen where it will goes, or what will be happen in a specific controlled business procedure, statistics process controlled logics can be defined and configured in accordance to meet que management, distributions.

Cons

Not easy to use, expert in technical relevant field is not enough, you have to adopt and learn the basic or terms of Anylogic which it is using, data graphs and visuals are not available fo big data, same there is no any option to work on it with live data or existing erp to simulate the scenarios based on actual data.

Equipment Utilization Time Analyses and Monitoring

2019-04-10

Very versatile but needs to further exercise and training. Are you conducting SW training? Also for budgetary purpose can you provide cost estimate of SW. Thanks, Richard

Pros

Provides detailed analyses and visual data help further debugging.

Cons

Also validate how to manipulate data for anaylogic processing = comprehensive report.

Simulation with Anylogic

2020-05-16

Streamlined supply chain processes, many improvements made by identifying bottle necks by simulation. Lead time, cycle time, EOQ is optimized by simulated process, hence taken cost benifet aswell shorten the cash cycle.

Pros

The great tool for simulation, from supply to production even supply chain forcasting can be simulated, you can simulate que management, can be used for production, supply chain apects like labour,material flow,tact time, cycle time, bottle neck process can be analysed. can simulate realtime scenerios before implemnting them.

Cons

Special training is required i.e not easy use, examples are less, more real time scenerios should be aded. support,tuotorial of scenerios can be made official by anyLogic.

Amazing software!

2019-09-23

I'm solving the road traffic problem in my area using traffic data. So far, I've been able to identify so many problems faced on everyday basis while traveling.

Pros

Easy and user friendly interface. It has every tool required for simulation of a scenario.

Cons

You could include more in depth tools for trafflation though.

AnyLogic, Best Supply Chain simulator

2020-06-12

Simulated whole process to meet the demand and cost by optimizng transport network design, production facilities and distrubution controls.

Pros

Speedy simulation with live graphics like flows etc, the parameters can be checked at any control with its live statistics, it feels just you have a operation in front of you.

Cons

Undefined errors, error cant traced furter to where the problem is, not so much support is available on internet, a service/discussion forum is needed for users, it can be effective aswell can be good thing to get support or new ideas.

The only one of its kind

2012-01-31

The best in its class of multi-method tools and as good as any other tool when compared on a single feature basis.

Pros

The ability to expand the drag-drop modeling environment at any time with Java code is really cool.

Cons

The feature set is amazing -- in fact, so rich to be a little daunting.

Great simulation approaches integration

2019-12-16

I am using the software to model and simulate the impacts of climate change avoidance policies on carbon emissions, and the possibility to combine system dynamics and agent based simulation is key.

Pros

The capability to combine different simulation approaches in a single experiment.

Cons

The design of the interfaces among the ‘main’ simulation elements is not much straightforward.

AnyLogic wows our customers

2016-06-28

On a recent project, we were able to simulate critical data that the client had no way of obtaining in the real world. This model would not have been possible to build if it weren't for the mixed DE-Agent paradigms which AnyLogic supports.

Pros

The flexibility in modeling paradigms--system dynamic, agent-based, and discrete event mechanisms can be embedded within one another.

Cons

There's a steep learning curve, but that's the case with all simulation software.

Recommendations to others considering AnyLogic

We're pleased with the continued level of investment and care AnyLogic puts into its software. For example, the Pedestrian Modeling Library and Traffic Library are huge additions to what is already quite mature, full-featured software.

(Mostly) Intuitive for New Users

2019-03-11

Word of mouth interactions for social network analysis and educational identity development.

Pros

Menus are clear and easy to follow and system functionalities are well explained (including mouse-over text, which is often overlooked in a system UI).

Cons

Some basic features are randomly buried in the software, including time unit interval settings and similar basic things that might not be changed often by base users but do become more important for complex models.
