An Object-oriented Process Flow Approach to ARGESIM Comparisons "Flexible Assembly System" with AnyLogic

Simulator: AnyLogic is an object-orientated, general-purpose simulator for discrete, continuous and hybrid applications. It supports modelling with UML – RT and the underlying modelling technology is based on Java. Since Version 4.5 AnyLogic provides different advanced libraries as the Enterprise Library which implements often used discrete model object classes like sources, conveyors, and sinks.

Model: As the Comparison addresses the possibility to define and combine submodels, the objectoriented approach of AnyLogic, using the Enterprise Library, seems natural. The model consists of eight stations connected by some conveyors (all predefined in the Enterprise Library).
