Movement of cash by armored transport

When you build a simulation model, you get to learn how the business work. On this blog we want to show an example on what we learn from the business in one of our projects. You can check the project details here: https://noorjax.com/portfolios/cash-iot/ Armored couriers, also known as armored truck drivers or armored transport professionals, are individuals[…]



AnyLogic Contest #3 – Automated Pallet Rack System

The contest is over and the winners are Guilherme Heinen with this model and Maximilian Selmair with this model, who acheived Level 4. Introduction Pallet Racks in the industry often use automated systems to move pallets around. But AnyLogic doesn’t have any built-in functionality to add these complexities to a process and modelers need to rely on[…]



General Requirements for a Simulation Project

When potential clients (whether it’s a student or a large organization) reach us to make a simulation model, they often ask, before sending any requirement, what does this requirement need to have, in order to be complete enough to evaluate costs, feasibilty and timeline. In 2018, we wrote an article stating how to reduce the ambiguity of[…]
