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.

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,
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,
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,
In my opinion, AnyLogic is one of the most flexible and efficient simulation tools on the market, that can be applied for solving operational and strategic tasks in a wide range of industries, including retail and logistics.
Andrey Semenov, Sr. Manager, Supply Chain Management,
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.
Dr. Gregory Kott, Principal Research Scientist, PARC. a Xerox Company,
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.
I've used AnyLogic and a number of other simulation tools as part of hospital services design over many years. I prefer AnyLogic for its flexibility and multimodal capabilities and wholeheartedly recommend it.
AnyLogic support team has been very proactive in supporting my projects and meeting my deadlines. I’ve been working with AnyLogic software less than a month and I'm feeling confident moving forward as I continuously learn a lot from the support team. AnyLogic support team to me is brilliant, fast, energetic and fully equipped with technical knowledge. Fear no more as anyone can easily learn simulation with AnyLogic's perfect support team guidance and user-friendly software.
AMD (Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.)
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, 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,
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.
Fruit of the Loom
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,
I’ve been using AnyLogic for about three or four years now, and I found that it’s probably one of the better solutions out there for really being able to implement models if you don’t necessarily have a very extensive coding background to start with.
Battelle Memorial Institute
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.
