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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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
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.

The competition is constantly getting tougher, and today you have to compete for a one-hundredth of a percent of a market share in many industries. That’s why AnyLogic is unique. It allows you to optimize business processes and rise your resource utilization rate up to the level unachievable for most of the competitors.
Alexey Mashanov, CTO
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.
