A Generic Operational Simulation for Early Design Civil Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Benjamin Schumann, Jim Scanlan (School of Engineering Sciences University of Southampton); Kenji Takeda (Microsoft Research). Proceedings of the SIMUL 2011: The Third International Conference on Advances in System Simulation
Contemporary aerospace programmes often suffer from large cost overruns, delivery delays and inferior product quality. This is caused in part by poor predictive quality of the early design phase processes with regards to the operational environment of a product. This paper develops the idea of a generic operational simulation that can help designers to rigorously analyse and test their early product concepts. The simulation focusses on civil Unmanned Air Vehicle products and missions to keep the scope of work tractable.» 続きを読む
Simulazione discreta con il software AnyLogic. Caratteristiche generali e applicazione ad unostudio oculistico Mattia Munaro, the University of Padua, Faculty of Engineering, 2009-2010
AnyLogic è un ambiente di modellazione virtuale di sistemi discreti, continui ed ibridi. Con questo strumento è possibile creare prototipi di sistemi durante le fasi di studio, progettazione o sviluppo, attraverso cui esplorare aspetti e dettagli della progettazione o della implementazione dei relativi sistemi in modo semplice e privo di rischi» 続きを読む

Utilising dynamic factory simulation to improve unit cost estimation and aid design decisions Stuart Jinks, Jim Scanlan, Philippa Reed (University of Southampton); Steve Wiseall (Rolls-Royce plc). Proceedings of the 2010 Winter Simulation Conference.
Utilising dynamic simulation methods to estimate manufacturing resources, can improve unit cost estimation and aid design decisions. This paper introduces a framework specification that combines Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Process Planning (CAPP) and Discrete Event Simulation (DES) technologies.» 続きを読む
Modeling and simulation of container terminal logistics systems using Harvard architecture and agent-based computing Bin Li (Department of Economics and Management); Wen-feng Li (School of Logistics Engineering). Proceedings of the 2010 Winter Simulation Conference.
As the highly complex logistics system, container terminal logistics systems play an increasingly important role in modern international logistics, and therefore their scheduling and decision-making process of much significance to the operation and competitiveness of harbors. In this paper, the handling, stacking and transportation in CTLS are regarded as a kind of generalized computing and compared with the working in general computer systems, whereupon the Harvard architecture and AnyLogic agent-based computing paradigm are fused to model the operational processing of CTLS, and the kernel thoughts in computer organization, architecture and operating system are introduced into CTLS to support and evaluate container terminal planning, scheduling and decision-making.» 続きを読む
An integrated pedestrian behavior model based on extended decision field theory and social force model Hui Xi, Young-Jun Son (The University of Arizona); Seungho Lee (Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.). Proceedings of the 2010 Winter Simulation Conference.
The integrated pedestrian simulation model proposed in this paper allows us to develop a more realistic simulation of pedestrian behaviors at a shopping mall. In particular, consideration of vision of each individual allows us to mimic physical and psychological interactions among the people and the environment more realistically. Similarly, consideration of extended Decision Field Theory allowed us to represent human decision deliberation process. In addition, consideration of a rich set of attributes for the environment as well as people has allowed us to mimic a real shopping mall environment closely. The constructed simulation using AnyLogic software was utilized to conduct several experiments on performance of the mall and scalability of the proposed model.» 続きを読む
Supply chain and hybrid modeling: the Panama Canal operations and it’s salinity diffusion Mario Marin, Yanshen Zhu (American Technologika); Luz Alba Andrade, Erwin Atencio, Carlos Boya (Universidad La Latina); Carlos Mendizabal (Universidad Tecnologica de Panama). Proceedings of the 2010 Winter Simulation Conference.
This paper deals with the simulation modeling of the service supply chain and the salinity and its diffusion in the Panama Canal. An operational supply chain model was created using discrete-event simulation. Once complete, a component based on differential equations was added to the model to investigate the intrusion of salt and the resulting salinity diffusion into the lakes of the canal. This component was implemented in the AnyLogic simulation modeling environment by taking advantage of the concept of hybrid modeling that is embedded in AnyLogic.» 続きを読む

A simulation modeling approach for improving oral health outcomes of older adults Michael J. Widener, University at Buffalo
This interdisciplinary research focuses on improving the oral health of older adults as a means of enhancing their overall wellbeing and quality of life. Periodontal disease is a risk factor for other chronic illnesses, notably diabetes and cardiovascular disease. In order to identify policies that improve oral health for older adults, a dynamic modeling approach that considers community and individual level factors is utilized.» 続きを読む
VirSim - a Model to Support Pandemic Policy Making Tobias Fasth, Marcus Ihlar, Lisa Brouwers. PLoS Currents: Influenza. September 2010.
A simulation model called VirSim was developed to aid policy making in Sweden. The model simulates the spread of pandemic influenza, using real population data on a national and regional level. Swedish authorities wanted a model that was both quick to run and to implement as a complement to the existing model MicroSim.» 続きを読む
