  • Simulation and modeling are important elements of a science based approach in disaster and emergency management. AnyLogic provides disaster and emergency management professionals with agent based modeling and tools that can simulate hazards and risks, emergency preparedness and response efforts, and post disaster recovery scenarios.

    Ali Asgary,
    Disaster & Emergency Management Program, York University
  • We found AnyLogic to be the best simulation platform on the market in terms of speed, flexibility, programability.

    Silviu Trebuian, Managing Director,
    Simando Technology SRL
  • We have found AnyLogic to be powerful, robust, and suitable for a wide variety of modeling projects. The ability to model using any of the major paradigms (or a combination) allows us to tailor our models appropriately. The user interface is easy to understand for people of all levels of education and experience. AnyLogic's superb technical support has helped us to model very complex systems that we would not have been able to do otherwise.

    Mark Kazmierczak,
    Gryphon Scientific
  • AnyLogic was the clear choice after comprehensive evaluation of multiple systems and further prototyping in those that were shortlisted. Furthermore, it continues to impress the deeper we get. There's no doubt the right simulation and modelling tool was selected for the majority of our current and future needs.

    Jay Ta'ala, Senior Modeller, Supply Chain Analytics,
    BHP Billiton Iron Ore
  • Multimethod modeling is the most important feature of AnyLogic. The biggest advantage for me was the capability for advanced healthcare modelling and simulation.

    Geoff McDonnell, Director,
    Adaptive Care Systems and Synergia
  • AnyLogic is extremely powerful, state of the art simulation software. The multimethod modeling capabilities and the ability to customize with Java are just two of the many reasons this software is so functional.

    Mike Prince, Senior Operations Research Specialist,
    BNSF Railway
  • I have been using Anylogic for quite some time now and have been falling in love with it. I have never seen such a powefull tool easily combing several modeling methods in a true and seemlessly integrated multimethod approach. Besides the functionality provided by the application I find the 'Get support' function very valuable. I have had a few cases where the response on my questions included a good advice or explanation and in one case the reply included the model with the suggested changes already applied. All within a few days. Excellent service helping me to quickly move on.

    Erwin Spekschoor, Project Manager and Consultant,

  • AnyLogic has demonstrated the capability of going from an academic environment to helping develop realistic tools in the areas of resource optimization. The simulation framework provides the ability to use both agent-based and event-based methods to describe the stochastic behavior of machine-controlled and human-controlled objects. Furthermore, the flexibility of creating customized code and outputting multiple aspects of the simulation permits for developers to test aspects of the tools being developed. Finally, the support of AnyLogic (both in the purchasing and development phases) was tremendous.

    Moises Sudit, Ph.D., Director, Information Fusion Group,
  • We use AnyLogic to understand better, improve and demonstrate how complex systems work. My personal favorite aspect of AnyLogic is the fact that it compiles the simulation models into a general purpose, fully object-oriented program language, like Java. Which allows us to embed optimization algorithms into simulations without writing unnecessary code.

    Onur Dulgeroglu, Senior Analytics Engineer,
    GE Global Research
  • The most flexible simulation modeling tool on the market - 1) through the Java platform and access to Java programming when needs for tailor-making the model appears 2) through the possibility to mix different modeling methods. Good libraries with predesigned objects and building blocks (with great flexibility in themselves), continuous improvements and enhancements in new versions, and a very good and customer-oriented support function, makes the big picture more or less complete in my view!

    Stefan Bengtsson,
    County of Stockholm
  • AnyLogic helps predict risks and trade offs to support decision making. It allows the users to visualize and validate plant design to gain buy in and ensure future production capacity, and forecast future workforce needs and risks. AnyLogic is very flexible, you can integrate it with many things. The software seems to evolve, and the developers listen to comments.

    Wenchun Annie Wang, Industrial Engineer – Simulation,
    CH2M Hill
  • The benefit of agent based modeling in AnyLogic is to truly model our supply chain. Each of the agents we use in our simulation can correspond to vessels, distribution centers, ports of loading, ports of discharge, our retailers, etc. with their own behaviors. AnyLogic makes it easy for me to give our many agents their own customizable behaviors and let them interact together in a fully integrated software.

    Beth Tyrie,
    Fruit of the Loom, Inc
  • AnyLogic is sufficiently flexible to support systems and policy research, yet robust enough to produce stand-alone applications that can be used by others to support their professional work.

    Neil McEvoy,
  • We chose AnyLogic for three reasons, technology, support and people. I think AnyLogic has the best technology in the simulation software industry, it has the agent based, process based and system dynamics, plus it is written in Java, which means many available resources and ease of finding people who can model in AnyLogic since many know Java code. AnyLogic can be deployed on the internet, you can develop an AnyLogic model and easily share with colleagues, partners, etc.

    Clark Chang,
    Norfolk Southern Railway
  • TSG Consulting has been a long time user of Arena simulation software, and a couple of years back we decided that we needed a more scalable and powerful simulation tool so we surveyed the market and spent around 6 months extensively testing a large number of simulation software packages. AnyLogic was the tool that stood clear of the rest. Our consultants have adopted AnyLogic with enthusiasm and we are seeing gains in their productivity and the quality of the models they produce. To say we are pleased with AnyLogic is understating our enthusiasm for the product and as a company we look forward to a great future working with AnyLogic.

    Peter Bodon, Technical Director,
    TSG Consulting
  • AnyLogic has a nice object-oriented feature that allows you to create a component and reuse it, which is very useful to us, plus, the user interface has many built in charts. The most valuable feature of AnyLogic to me is to export a model, and let anyone run it on their computer without a software license.

    Victor Chang, Software Engineer,
  • We were looking at the behavior of our shippers in the oil & gas industry, and we needed to model this without using hundreds of pages of code. AnyLogic was the optimal method, we could create agents, and especially dynamically create multiple agents, plus we used multimethod since there were other processes where we needed to use discrete event and system dynamics.

    Dumitru Cernelev, CEO,
    Stream Systems Ltd.
  • We use simulation tools, including AnyLogic, to analyze alternative capital investment solutions in order to help decide on the best investment decision. AnyLogic has helped with that decision process by providing our company with a tool that is flexible/adaptable to build models in different groups within our company using the team license server. We can easily use and combine multiple simulation methods to create the best modeling approach for each problem. The built-in functionality allows for new users to get up and running quickly and the use of Java means advanced users are able to build and customize more complex models.

    Jeremiah Dirnberger,
  • AnyLogic is flexible: I don't feel hemmed in with any approach, and version 7 is a huge leap forward in the multimethod capability. We usually make changes with our eyes wide open thanks to AnyLogic!

    Keith Stockman, Manager of Projects and Operations Research, General Medicine Program,
    Monash Health
  • Although I am still a new user of AnyLogic, I have been very impressed with its flexibility, ease of use, and the multimethod capabilities. AnyLogic’s versatility and standard libraries allow us to address a large number of different business process automation questions very quickly and with one software tool. I also believe the ability to customize ours models with Java code is invaluable when modeling the complex interactions in today’s real-world systems and operations.

  • We chose AnyLogic because we found that traditional techniques did not do just to what we were trying to model. When we saw AnyLogic, it was a great ah-ha moment to say this is the tool I need to solve the problems I am trying to solve. The benefits of a multi-method modeling approach are that you can solve the problem more naturally. If you do not have the ability to do multi-method modeling, you end up creating all types of anomalies in your model, fitting the methodology rather than fitting the problem. Multimethod modeling is a great effective tool.

    Bipin Chadha, Ph.D., Data Scientist,
  • I have seen a lot of simulation products and this is the only one that can combine all three methodologies. Plus, the ability to show all the graphic components has a great impact on who I present the models to. This allows AnyLogic to be THE choice for simulation modeling.

    Kelvin Blyden, Supply Chain Analyst,
  • AnyLogic is proved to be a very useful tool as I can build simulations using different simulation methodologies and create intuitive and appealing interfaces for end-users. Most functionality is available as predefined objects but it is nice to have the flexibility to add your own structures if necessary. Their technical support team is very knowledgeable and responsive; their support has been outstanding in my experience.

    Principal Informatics Scientist,
    AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals
  • We chose AnyLogic because of its flexibility. We have many customers in many industries that have very different requirements because their supply chains are different, and we’ve been very easily able to change our models quickly to interact with the customers. The agent based tool is very powerful for us, our automated robots are highly intelligent, so we want to represent those behaviors using the agent based approach inside the AnyLogic tool, and we have very large fleets, up to 500 robots in a system, and AnyLogic is able to handle the complexity of the interactions amongst those 500 robots and able to do computations efficiently.

    Dr. Larry M. Sweet, CTO,
    Symbotic LLC
  • AnyLogic is an easy to learn platform that is able to incorporate various modeling techniques to allow us to create powerful solutions for our clients.

    Eric Rosenbaum, Experienced Associate,
    PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP
  • AnyLogic has been perfect for us because of its flexibility and multimethod approach. We are able to look at a lot of different types of interactions, that you couldn’t typically do with, for example, a discrete modeling software. We are able to address many different problems with just one tool, which is fantastic for us.

    Allan Chegus, President,
    Stream Systems Ltd.
  • AnyLogic is a powerful simulation tool combined with Java. What I like about AnyLogic is its velocity, adaptability, and versatility.

    Mariana Dorigatti,
  • I would recommend AnyLogic software because it is a mature platform that allows a combination of multimethod modeling paradigms, in a very user friendly and open manner. Plus it takes advantage of Java which is also a technically mature and secure way of building models. The advantages of agent-based modeling with AnyLogic is that you can combine it with other methods and combine existing knowledge with agent based approach. Also, it’s fairly user friendly, the facilities in the graphical user interface and development are very good.

    Artem Parakhine,
    PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP
  • I am new to the AnyLogic product, but have gotten up to speed quickly. In part, this reflects the strength of the product itself - the ability to design the simulation logic graphically, using the extensive set of tools provided. However, the AnyLogic staff has also played a large role, through training and support. The technical team even added custom features to the language to better support my specific needs.

    Roger Baugher,
    TrAnalytics LLC
  • One of the most important AnyLogic features is the ability to build our own libraries. We only have to build them once, but can use them multiple times in different models.

    Gunnar Feldmann, Assistant Operations Research Specialist,
    Norfolk Southern Corporation
  • Anylogic is by far one of the most advanced software programs for simulation of complex systems. It can be applied efficiently in the modeling of highly complex systems in various spheres of contemporary economics and teaching, as well as in teaching MBA classes to top managers and corporate decision makers.

  • AnyLogic provides simulation modelling that steps outside the limitations of many traditional evaluation techniques. Which means, when used correctly, it gets around the biases inherent in old school thinking. If you want to find new and innovative ways of doing business, understanding issues, developing policy then you need to have evaluation tools that can keep up. AnyLogic provides that flexibility.

    Gerard Nelson,
    RedHot Innovation
  • We’ve been using AnyLogic probably for four years now. Most of my work time I was working with another academically based agent based modeling system. We were aware that AnyLogic existed, but only after a while did we think that maybe we should look at it instead of looking at the system we were using, and we found that it was easier for us to learn and to implement.

    Neil McEvoy, Director,
    Centre for Research in Healthcare Engineering
  • We chose AnyLogic to tackle our large complex problem because of the multimethod models you can use, the mix of agent based, discrete event and system dynamics is a very useful combination. My favorite part of AnyLogic is all the dashboard features, the great charts and business intelligence you can get from the agents that are working in the model.

    Kyle Johnson, Global Business Services, Advanced Analytics and Optimization,
  • I go back with AnyLogic to the very beginning: over ten years now. Ten years ago, AnyLogic was what I call the only industrial strength product that had a hope of doing both system dynamics, agent based, and discrete event in one package. As best as I can tell, it’s still the only package that has that capability. As we do more especially in the realm of agent based models, there are some open-source tools, but none of them has anything close to the functionality that AnyLogic does.

    Dr. Mark Paich, Director,
    PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP
  • AnyLogic is a simulation package that provides value to users at all levels. The visual UI allows entry level users to quickly develop insightful simulation models. The ability to customize models with Java provides the flexibility and freedom for advanced users to develop highly detailed and complex models efficiently. The integration of AnyLogic with such a widely known language such as Java makes it accessible to a very broad talent pool, and eases the learning curve for good programmers to become advanced AnyLogic users.
