Running the same analysis using only classic tools (e.g. MS Excel) would have shown only the average picture of past events and the forecast would be missing the behavior in time which makes it risky to rely on those solutions. While in classic analysis all the connections are described only by formulas, in simulation models those connections are regulated by rules and probabilities, it is possible to work with physical parameters (like space motion, mass, state change). At the same time the model will be visually illustrative and clear for all kinds of users. Running a simulation model of a real process can show to which result the integration of different initiatives can lead. Such model can become a reliable justification for planned changes and help take the best decisions.
So the «Gotham City Crime Simulator» model is yet another one engaging way to look at the capabilities of AnyLogic. Except for sociodemographic processes the tool can be used to build financial, logistic, investment, production, healthcare, traffic, IT, telecom models and many others. Additionally for supply chain modeling the AnyLogic Company developed a separate product – anyLogistix
