Creating a Model

We began by learning the basics of AnyLogic, a software program that enables users to create agent-based simulations. To practice using AnyLogic, we created some simple models, such as the Bank model below. We included 4 tellers and an ATM, and worked on charting data as the simulation ran.

Once we gained better understanding of the modeling process, the model for the Cultural Center Station was created. Some images of the setup are below.

Pictured above is how we organized the bus movements.

Above is the setup that determines the passengers’ movements.

 

When the simulation actually runs, it looks like the picture below. In the upper right hand side of the screen there are buttons to choose different camera views, so all aspects of the simulation can be seen.
