Crowd safety at Hajj – Simulation modeling


Crowd safety at Hajj – Simulation modeling

Emergency evacuation planning for mass gatherings is essential public safety and security work for authorities and can help save lives. Imran Mahmood and Muhammad Haris of the National University of Sciences and Technology, Pakistan, and Hessam Sarjoughian of Arizona State University, USA, have used an AnyLogic based crowd simulation and analysis framework to analyze emergency evacuation strategies for one of the world’s greatest mass gatherings: Hajj.

Model Overview – Customer Service at a Border Crossing

New releases of AnyLogic come with new example models. These help newcomers understand simulations and experienced users to learn about AnyLogic’s advanced capabilities.

New to AnyLogic is our Border Checkpoint model. It is based on the same principles as classical queueing systems, such as those found in banks, shops, and medical centers.

In this post, we show how to model and analyze a variety of these business problems using the new border crossing model.

Optimal Aircraft Boarding Strategy


Optimal Aircraft Boarding Strategy

To increase profit, airlines seek to minimize turnaround time. Turnaround time is attributed to multiple factors, disembarkation, baggage unloading, refueling, cargo unloading, aircraft maintenance, cargo and baggage loading and passenger boarding. A group in the Science and Engineering Faculty at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia completed a project using AnyLogic software to investigate the turnaround time for aircraft passenger boarding using AnyLogic simulation software. The recently published paper studied seven common boarding strategies and two new suggested strategies to find the optimal boarding methods for a Boeing 777 and Airbus 380. They considered behavior of groups traveling together, and individuals storing luggage as part of the simulation model.
