Scaling AnyLogic Models for Mass Runs and Sub-Second Responses


Scaling AnyLogic Models for Mass Runs and Sub-Second Responses

More runs, more users, and more model. More and more is demanded of simulation models as clients analyze greater numbers of scenarios, expand user access, and model in greater detail. How to scale and meet these demands?

PwC emerging technology senior manager Sindy Ma is an expert on scaling simulations. Her presentation at the AnyLogic Conference 2021 showed three real-world case studies of projects that met the challenge of scaling simulations for more scenarios, more users, and more model. Find out more...

Q&A: COVID-19 Mass Vaccination — Simulation, AI Application and Real-World Implementation


Q&A: COVID-19 Mass Vaccination — Simulation, AI Application and Real-World Implementation

As COVID-19 vaccines have become available, many challenges have needed resolving. Not least, ensuring sufficient supply and effective distribution.

At our webinar, March 2021, guest presenter Dr. Ali Asgary of York University, Canada, gave insight into the development and use of a drive-through mass COVID-19 vaccination simulation. He provided details of its machine learning model and online application, including how public authorities are using the results in their vaccination rollouts. Here are the webinar details, recording, and Q&A answers.

COVID 19: The Good, the Bad and the Agent Based Model


COVID 19: The Good, the Bad and the Agent Based Model

Why is it so hard to model the COVID-19 epidemic? In this guest blog Ignacio Brottier and Patricio Pipp look at how agent-based simulation modeling goes beyond traditional SEIR and its shortfalls.

The first step to understanding any system is asking ourselves what it is we are trying to understand and, as the team of FiveThirtyEight well explains in their very recommended article, understanding COVID-19’s evolution is no easy task...

Q&A: Hybrid Dynamic Models in COVID-19 Planning and Beyond


Q&A: Hybrid Dynamic Models in COVID-19 Planning and Beyond

The webinar Hybrid Dynamic Models in COVID-19 Planning and Beyond drew in a record number of attendees and prompted some great questions around the theme of simulation modeling and healthcare planning.

Dr. Nathaniel Osgood, a Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Associate Faculty in the Department of Community Health & Epidemiology at the University of Saskatchewan, provided great insight into simulation modeling related to healthcare. Read on for the webinar details, recording, and Dr. Nathaniel Osgood’s Q&A answers.

Examining Healthcare Policy for Surgical Oncology Delivery


Examining Healthcare Policy for Surgical Oncology Delivery

In cancer patients, an inability to access the surgical system can be lethal, but accessing it can be impoverishing, especially in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).  A group from the Global Surgery and Social Change, Department of Global Health and Social Medicine, Harvard Medical, supported by National Cancer Institute used AnyLogic Software to evaluate the health, financial, and equity impacts of governmental and charitable policies for surgical oncology in a resource-limited setting.
