Create network by code

Let’s go through this simple example that will allow an agent to move through a network, avoiding the use of deprecated constructors in AnyLogic 8.4. Create the network. This network will be necessary for an agent to follow the proper paths from point A to point B. All these functions[…]

Use in Flowchart as… what?

There is something beginner AnyLogic users take for granted when they build a model. For instance, when using the Process Modeling Library, they use the Agent Type. On the other hand, when they build a model using the Pedestrian Library, they use a pedestrian type. Why? Because it’s there, naturally[…]

Relationships between agents is a typical thing to generate when you create agent-based models, but how do you do it? On this video I show you the bad practice and the good practice. Even though this is not part of the lectures, you will learn this and much more in[…]

In one of the lectures of the AnyLogic course for discrete events and agent based modeling, I explain the different ways that exist in AnyLogic to send messages between agents. Concepts that are generally not well understood by a typical AnyLogic user. Now you can get an extract of this[…]
