Advanced Discrete Event modeling environment.

Overview

AnyLogic is the only tool that supports all the most common simulation methodologies in place today: System Dynamics, Process-centric (AKA Discrete Event), and Agent Based modeling. The unique flexibility of the modeling language enables the user to capture the complexity and heterogeneity of business, economic and social systems to any desired level of detail. AnyLogic's graphical interface, tools, and library objects allows you to quickly model diverse areas such as manufacturing and logistics, business processes, human resources,consumer and/or patient behavior. The object-oriented model design paradigm supported by AnyLogic provides for modular, hierarchical, and incremental construction of large models.

AnyLogic is the only advanced Discrete Event modeling environment available for Mac users - and discrete event is the most common commercial application of simulation. It is ubiquitous in factory design, business process reengineering, logistics/supply chain and many other disciplines.

The $485 price is for a limited Educational license. According to their website, their US prices are: $6,199 Advanced Edition $15,800 Professional Edition I can't comment on the software itself since I have zero interest in it due to its price. I would rather buy Consideo, Flying Logic, Simgua, Quantrix, Office 2011, and a new 12-Core Mac Pro, and still save some money!

I'm reviewing the "Personal Learning Edition" of AnyLogic, which is now up to version 7.1.2. The PLE version is Free, but is definitely a crippled demo - you can only run simulations up to a simulated hour, which in the demos I tried was less than 5 minutes of simulation time. AnyLogic is really powerful, and a well put-together program. I particularly appreciate that all of the simulations in the famous "Business Dynamics" book are available. The unique power of this program is that it supports (and combines) multiple simulation techniques - discrete event and system dynamics, which are not combined in similar tools elsewhere. They've done a nice job of allowing you to package your simulations in ways that can be communicated to non-simulation experts. You can create 3D (or 2D) models, and have the simulation take place within those settings. I'm about to uninstall the PLE, because 3-5 minutes is just not enough time to play with and learn about models. If I get more serious, I'll apply for the academic version. In summary, "impressive program, but one star off for a heavily crippled 'learning edition'."

The version number here is a typo ( I presume). AnyLogic's current version is 6.6, not 3.6. You can read a Features List here: http://alna.typepad.com AnyLogic is the only simulation tool that works in all three major disciplines: Discrete Event, System Dynamics, and Agent-Based simulation. You can even combine these techniques in the same model to reduce "compromises" and "assumptions" and make your model's behavior closer to the system you are studying. It runs on Macs (and Windows and Linux). There are other commercial Mac tools for System Dynamics, and open source tools for Agent Modeling, but AnyLogic is the only Mac software to run Discrete Event modeling -- the most common form of simulation to be found in the business world! And, by default, the only mac tool that can combine these methods into a model. Being Java based it allows you to extend the application anywhere with your own code. YOu can even save and distribute your models as Java applets -- so your clients and colleagues can run them in any browser. Supports 3D modeling, automatic documentation, modeling wizards, excel I/O, extensive graph outputs and libraries of intelligent objects which allow to build complex models with just drag and drop. Because it has so many features it is hard to characterize -- it spans market segments occupied by both academic open-source tools as well as large scale commercial software. But, as the name implies, it might be the only simulation and detailed quantification app you'll ever need.

Hi. The Educational license is not "limited" like other software makers hobble their "student' licenses. It is a very powerful license, available in perpetuity, with far more power than the alternatives you list here (which cost more!) The great price is an educational discount -- a marketing strategy to spread the word. If you are eligible for an Educational license (.edu email is enough, other ways too) than this represents tremendous value. Our commercial licenses are more expensive than products you mention, true. But for consulting companies and R&D companies time is money and our combination of power, flexibility, and speed makes it well worth their while. Besides, the gist of the post was to point out that AnyLogic is the only Mac-based Discrete Event application (the ones you list are variations of system dynamics and algebra). DES is the most common approach in business for process, material handling, supply chain, etc. TO make your price comparison fair, apples to apples (pun intended) you would compare us to Rockwell Arena or ProModel for DES which (1) cost much more than we do, and (2) aren't available on macs anyway.
