AnyLogic and AnyLogic Cloud releases update MHL, API, UI, and more

Before a festive break code freeze, updates for both AnyLogic and AnyLogic Cloud arrived. Contained within them were several improvements that we'll take a look at in this blog.

For AnyLogic, we introduced new rack functionality for the Material Handling Library and added file output capability for models exported to AnyLogic Cloud. While for AnyLogic Cloud, we added enterprise features, made user experience improvements, and increased security. Let’s take a look!

Restricted Areas: How to control access for transporters (Part 6)


Restricted Areas: How to control access for transporters (Part 6)

A key part of the AnyLogic 8.6 update related to the Material Handling Library. Now the movement of transporters such as AGV can be restricted by area and access can be permitted conditionally: by transporter number, by schedule, by throughput, and more.

This technical blog guides you through how to use these restricted areas and demonstrates them with the help of a practical example model: Areas with Limited Access for Transporters.

Getting started with material handling – webinar and MHL Pocket Handbook


Getting started with material handling – webinar and MHL Pocket Handbook

A new way to get started with AnyLogic’s Material Handling Library is now available — the MHL Pocket Handbook. At our Planning & Optimizing AGVs and Conveyors webinar with DSE Consulting, June 2020, attendees were introduced to this new interactive tool for learning MHL blocks. Both the pocket handbook and the webinar also provide sneak peeks at some upcoming AnyLogic 8.6 features.

Webinar host Aanand Davé, managing director of DSE Consulting, introduced in-house DSE simulation specialist, Kelvin Yeung, and Jock Richardson, director at agri-tech company Growpura. Together, they demonstrated material handling simulation using AnyLogic and highlighted its use in industry with a model of Growpura’s large-scale hydroponics setup.

Network port: Learning to use the Material Handling Library (Part 5)

Part five of our series on AnyLogic’s Material Handling Library, a library specifically designed to help model the work of factories, warehouses, and other facilities where goods are moved, processed, and sorted.

This blog demonstrates how to connect individual conveyors, and any processing stations on them, into a single conveyor network using the Network Port element.
