Introducing our first guest editor, Justin Rawlings from Australia. Very warm welcome :-)
The view area object in AnyLogic is a useful little helper for that. Build-in support allows you to jump around any part of your model. You can also apply a bit of coding and access the full power of the view area. Make your client happy and give your mouse a break.
Check out two neat tricks to improve your model user interface: an interface ribbon and a way to check out every agent directly.
Get to know a little AnyLogic helper that can improve your models massively: the shy lightbulb.
In our second post on improving your model UI, we look at practical steps to improve the experiment setup screen.
The first part of a min-series on improving user interfaces in simulation models. Focusses on some general principles for a start.
Do you struggle explaining your work? What do you tell people when they ask? Or is that easy for you but the challenge is to hook potential clients or improve your simulation consulting skills? I found a really useful tool to all of these questions…
The recent Nobel laureate in Economics has a lot to say for simulation practitioners. Find out how agent-based models just wait for his inputs.
Do you wonder if a career in simulation consulting is for you? Do you want to advance from where you are? From my own journey, learn what to avoid and what to pursue to become an expert in simulation.
You are testing your model, right? Great! Let me show you how increase your testing efficiency, make your model code look elegant and even enable your clients take advantage of your testing.
How do you make sure the next generation of modellers acquires good modelling practices? How can you pass on modelling experience to your peers? Turns out, chicken can be very helpful…
Simulation has been around since long before computers. Find out what your great-grandparents had to teach you about good simulation.
Learn how to supercharge AnyLogic charts by creating your own. Use AnyLogic objects in new ways to create individual and creative pieces of information.
When should you use Action Charts instead of Functions when creating algorithms in AnyLogic? Lets explore the pitfalls and advantages of Action Charts.
The public space could learn a lot from modern airports. Four lessons from my latest Heathrow Terminal 2 visit.
I propose to apply the concepts of steampunk to modelling: over-engineering models of everyday life for the fun of it. Send your best suggestions and I will apply them.
What are conferences all about? Content or making contact to other people? Some advice for keeping your focus clear.
This week, I review the latest beta release of the simulation software AnyLogic. New features are checked against their long-term impact on modelling work. Two are real game-changers, I think :-)
Follow these steps before even touching your modelling program to ensure success. It is all about planning...
Avoid being shot as the messenger of bad news with four simple steps.
