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.
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.

AnyLogic experts at business consulting company NFP worked to resolve a crane task distribution problem for a major international metallurgical company. Their innovative solution employed machine learning and improved on an expert selected policy. Read on to learn more about the project.
The simulation model can be found in the cloud and was featured as model of the month December 2019.
Learn how to model multi-level environments and how to simulate automated guided vehicles and cranes in this webinar video recording with supporting materials.
Using four example models, our in-house simulation expert and head of training in North America, Dr. Arash Mahdavi, introduces the fundamentals of the AnyLogic Material Handling Library. Understand the possibilities the library presents and see how to get started.
AnyLogic Help has a new tutorial: Lead Acid Battery Production (Material Handling). By following the tutorial, you can learn how to model material handling processes using AnyLogic’s specialized Material Handling Library. The tutorial explains step-by-step how to create a model of a lead-acid battery production line. The model includes path-guided and free-space automatic guided vehicles (AGV), conveyors, and cranes. Check it out!
Walmart, the world’s largest seller of groceries, recently began piloting first-of-a-kind automation for its popular online grocery pickup service.
Our partners at MOSIMTEC used AnyLogic to develop the simulation model behind the system’s development. Read on for more about the material handling system, videos of the robots in action, and MOSIMTEC's case study.
Being #26 in last years’ Fortune 500 list, Cardinal Health is a billion dollar pharmaceutical distribution and logistics company. Its clients are hospitals, pharmacies, physicians, and individual consumers. They face a multitude of typical distribution warehouse challenges that are further complicated by the nature of pharmaceutical products, which are smaller in size, consumable, expensive, and could be life critical. Company’s warehouses have narrow passages, and workers operate big multilevel trolleys. That increases the probability of employees’ mistakes and makes these mistakes costly.
This short tutorial shows how to build a simulation model based on a real-world problem description, using an example of a simple warehouse unloading process model. Also, it teaches to set animation and choose what-if scenarios to test. The AnyLogic User Support Team created the tutorial. The model simulates the arrival of trucks with two types of cartons to a warehouse. Workers unload the cartons, which then move on conveyors to the pallet stacking zone. After palletizing, the goods are moved by forklift trucks to the storage zone. Download the tutorial and accompanying material via our website.
