Pros: - Integrate all types of simulation modelling in one tool. For example you can create multi-agent model, where agent's behaviour contains inner system dynamic model. At same every agent can act in dynamical changing world, where environment based on discrete event modelling.

- You can easy add your own program code lines to handle any event, that happens during modelling. For example you can send message on screen or send message to interact with other agent during events, such as arrive to destination point, take place in queue, leave queue, start processing on a device.

- You can create your own blocks and use them to build models like with standard block.

- You can create beautiful animated 3D presentation of your model.

- There are a lot of free tutorials, video lectures, examples, books that can help you start build complicated beautiful models. There is well done documentation with good tips and advises.

- You can every time ask support any question you want and they answer you in short.

Cons: - New versions of Anylogic comes very often, sometimes its annoying to reinstall it. You can skip one update, but there can be some problems.

- I notice that when you update Anylogic, your old models can stop working in new version of Anylogic, you had to fix syntax errors in models code. At same time modes, that you create in new version of Anylogic probably will not open in old version of Anylogic. Looks like developers not care about backward comparability when preparing updates. It can be real problems if Anylogic version is different on your home PC and on your PC at work. I hope developers will take my opinion in consideration and provide backward compatibility for next updates.

Overall: Overall experience with Anylogic is very good. I use it to model business systems and processes to collecting statistic or optimization.

Pros: Once you understand the core basics (OOP, Java, experimentation...), an immense bag of features and possibilities opens up.

The support subscription is quite good value for money as well.

Cons: The online community lives on a LinkedIn forum, this should move to a dedicated place or StackOverflow.

Overall: AnyLogic is an amazing piece of software but it comes like an iceberg: 90% is hidden under water. Getting started is easy but then the learning curve gets quite steep. It massively helps to know OOP because it sits on an Eclipse Java shell.

However, this allows you to do *anything*. Need to add this specific behavior? No problem. Want to use this Java package? Go for it.

I have been using it for 8+ years now in a huge variety of projects, from implementing massive simulations into Fortune500 companies to producing small on-the-fly models during meetings.

Once you get the hang, it is a lot of fun to have this power under your fingers.

AnyLogic really is the only software out there that can combine agents, discrete-event processes and system dynamics, a feature that is massively underestimated yet. However, with the rise of Analytics and Big Data, it becomes ever more important to model close to reality.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you start out, don't despair, it is a lot to swallow. Do visit a training course, it makes a huge difference and probably saves you 2-3 months of tinkering!

Pros: The incredible flexibility!

With AnyLogic's multi simulation paradigm framework a user can implement system dynamics, process-centric modeling (Discrete event) as well as agent-based modeling techniques all in one model AnyLogic is unbelievably flexible and with Java as a backend, there is nothing you can not do.

AnyLogic is also at the forefront of new development in the simulation space. Always reinventing their product and offering and leading the simulation world into new technologies like cloud based simulations .

Cons: Like anything worth doing it requires some effort to master the basics of the software. But with excellent technical support and great examples and training amterial this can be overcome quite easily.

Overall: An incredibly powerful tool that allows decision makers to judge the impact of changes on systems and enable them to make faster, better decisions and predictions. Traditional support tools cannot adequately consider complexities, constraints, dynamic interdependencies and variability to support decision-making within such a complex environment.

Pros: Anylogic has great Flexibility, runs on java and a huge amount of functionality. It can present models in 2D or 3D with a decent library of graphs and outputs by default.

It is very suitable for many different applications, and if you want, can essentially model anything you can think of (if you program it yourself).

I've mostly used it in manufacturing, and its been able to do everything I've wanted it to do in the end. It's not always as easy as other software, but that's a trade off between functionality and usability.

Cons: It can be tricky to start with certainly, and there are some elements that are much easier to do in other simulation software packages. That said, you can usually find a way of doing it in anylogic, although this takes longer and is trickier.

It's not always easy to find the problem when something goes wrong. The software is essentially wrapped up Java, but this means it's not as easy to debug as a sheet of code. Code is fragmented between elements, which takes some getting used to.

The UI is also very slow and unresponsive (even on powerful machines), there's a lot that could be improved here.

Overall: Overall it is a great piece of software, but you need knowledge of java and a good problem solving mind. It is incredibly powerful and flexible, but I would say can be beaten in specific applications where simulation software is built for just one or two purposes.

Pros: I have been using Anylogic for the past 6 months now everyday and I can say that once you open it up, it is such a great and useful program. Working in the engineering / simulation department, being able to use Anylogic makes work so much easier and dare I even say it, "fun". It can be used for such a variety of things and so many different ways to program it to make it useful in many multi-functional capacities. Once the basic learning curve is established, it is a breeze to use and there are so many layers to it that it makes simulation great! Very clean layout, always new updates and bug fixes. I recommend to all!

Cons: The cost can be a varying weight factor in the decision to use anylogic versus other softwares but given the multitude of functionalities, it really is a no brainer. There have been a few bugs in the latest update, but the customer service has been great to help me through these issues.

Pros: AnyLogic allows you to solve problems in any modelling paradigm you could want. It makes it possible to use the best tool for the job in every part of your model.

Cons: Compiling time could be faster for larger models.

Overall: We're solving health and social policy problems. Because AnyLogic is built for hybrid modelling, it makes these huge, messy problems tractable and extraordinarily easy to reason about and construct. I can't imagine doing my work with any other piece of software. Worth every dollar.

As a simulation analyst I am using AnyLogic on a daily basis to solve complex questions.

Pros: What I like most in AnyLogic is the fact, that everything in the simulation model is easily configurable using Java code. The wide range of simulation experiments and also the database (and connectivity in general) enable a very flexible and efficient use of the software.

Cons: It would be great if there was an online community to ask questions and allow discussions. Simply googleing things (like you can do for VBA, Java and such) is not really possible. However, the support team of AnyLogic is really quick and provides very helpful answers.

Pros: AnyLogic is the only tool supporting all the different simulation techniques and even allowing you to combine them into hybrid models.

The ability to expand the drag-drop modeling environment at any time with Java code is really cool. And the ability to export the model as a java applet that will play in any browser is also very cool -- now you can deliver your models to users who don't have sim software installed and would NEVER have it installed -- but they can still run the experiments you design.

Customer support like you've never imagined! "Hey, my model doesn't work very well" is an acceptable request! They'll work on it, make it better, do things you never thought of, and send it back. All for free and as many times as you like!"

Cons: The feature set is amazing -- in fact, so rich to be a little daunting. This makes the learning curve longer than most tools, not really steeper, aka harder, its just that there's a lot to learn.

The documentation is a little dense and the grammar is stiff and formal. I wish there were a simpler, "how to build models the easy way" book as opposed to all this formality.

Overall: The best in its class of multi-method tools and as good as any other tool when compared on a single feature basis.

The customer support is amazing.

Pros: This software allows us to simulate the reality with Java. It will then possible to simulate what you think.

Cons: It takes time to start! Even though the tutorial provides us a few examples, it is rather not enough. More examples with detailed description are highly demanded.

Overall: I focus on the analysis of the information system for aircraft maintenance.

Now, basically, I have accomplished the simulation system with which experiments can be carried out.

Still, I can't wait to learn the use of Anylogic, because it is truely very powerful.

Pros: The flexibility in modeling paradigms--system dynamic, agent-based, and discrete event mechanisms can be embedded within one another. Need to model a discrete process with autonomous agents inside those process steps? No problem. The tech support and responsiveness is phenomenal, too.

Cons: There's a steep learning curve, but that's the case with all simulation software.

Overall: Our clients love the results and customizability afforded by AnyLogic. On a recent project, we were able to simulate critical data that the client had no way of obtaining in the real world. This model would not have been possible to build if it weren't for the mixed DE-Agent paradigms which AnyLogic supports.

Recommendations to other buyers: We're pleased with the continued level of investment and care AnyLogic puts into its software. For example, the Pedestrian Modeling Library and Traffic Library are huge additions to what is already quite mature, full-featured software.

Pros: The GUI is pleasant and easy-to-use. The fact that it permits multi-method modelling represents one of the biggest key features of this software. The graphic representations of the model is also another strenght considering that most of the stuff presented in the model are associable with a graphic 2D/3D representation.

Cons: Some features are really difficult to implement. The output analysis of multi-replications run is not executed automatically, and I consider this one of the basics for a simulation software.

Overall: I usually use AnyLogic for solving Manufacturing and Logistics issues, but now I'm entering in the world of supply chains. I highly recommend this software because some of its features are unique and also because the development is going really fast adding new features and industry 4.0 libraries.

Pros: The Agent Based simulation modeling is outstanding.

Thanks to the variety of modules and the ease of use I was able develop and demonstrate my graduation project in Software Engineering by simulating the time and work it would take for a Software Quality Assurance engineers to finish a work through an iteration process for a certain amount of requirements.

It was thanks to the probability distribution functions that I was able to create different models of execution and demonstrate my findings.

How did I start to develop my simulation? I find the tutorials and documentation of the program, along with the amount of examples provided right from the beginning, is fantastic.

Cons: Even though I have a background in programming, I find that the transitions under the Properties panel could be a little intimidating for other users who do not have the knowledge or programming background.

Pros: The easiness to use and build different types of simulation models including System Dynamics! The sofware is user-friendly and there are several examples off the shelf to do many of the simulation model that we are interested in developing. The fact that we have several methods in the same tool allows for a good communication between those methods leading to even hybrid models.

Cons: The price of the professional version is a bit high at least from a university point of view. It would be nice to have all those capabilities also for research projects. Collaboration in thesis would be nice too where the software could be given at no cost.

Overall: Good tools for the work of my master and PhD students.

Comments: AnyLogic is really an incredible tool that can be used by non-programmers that are familiar with simple drag and drop to hard core programmers that prefer to write their own Java classes.

Since they cater for process centric, agent based and system dynamics one is really able to model in the paradigm that makes the most sense for your specific level of abstraction and real world scenario.

Although the wide variety of options available might seem daunting to a novice it is definitely worth the effort to understand the objects and functions available. While other programs are more simple in design you very quickly hit a ceiling and have to find lots of workarounds that could have been avoided.

The customer service and tech support is also next level.

Pros: The platform has very useful features to build a model easily.

Agents and variables are not difficult to use.

Cons: Some variables I had to insert manually, because Anylogic couldn't do it by its own. For example, to find the minimum Queue length of 5 counters I had to find the minimum of Queue 1 and 2 first, then Queue 2 and 3 and so on..

Overall: Overall experience was good.

They made it simple but useful.

Pros: The application is flexible in allowing to model/simulate simple to complex events and phenomena. It is relatively easy to learn - which makes it ideal tool for teaching. It's object oriented design and the fact that it is Java programming language based makes it ideal for solutions that may require extensibility.

Cons: The learning version was too Other than the price there is little I didn't like about the tool

Overall: I was able to go through the introductory examples (in the "AnyLogic in 3 days" document) fairly quick... after which applying to new projects was not very difficult.

If U`ll make a big model I recommend use Anylogic, because it`s possible to use in any directions.
