late ohjaaSimulation modelling understandably draws attention across industries and academic disciplines. This was evident also last week when SimAnalytics Academy organized the first open modelling workshop in Finland. Altogether eight participants ranging from researchers to industrial warehousing experts to university lecturers attended the 2-day “Simulation Modelling & Logistics Management” workshop in Kerava.

attendeesThe program acquainted motivated learners to the basics of complex thinking and building simulation models with AnyLogic software. Instructors tried to keep the lectures as short as possible and get the participants hands-on building their simulation models. This structure was clearly appreciated.

“Illustrative exercises with discussions gave many new ideas to utilize simulation modelling with many occasions and challenges. Thank you!”

The possibilities of agent-based modelling stimulated the most ideas among the attendees. Controlling real-life randomness through Monte Carlo principles gathered great amount of attention too. Also ideas  for utilizing modelling methods in teaching came up during conversations.

“An intensive, well-guided workshop. Well-informed instructors. Thank you!”

The feedback gave us many ideas to develop Academy events in the future. In advanced level events we will definitely focus even more on running experiments with created models.

Upcoming Academy events are already under planning for spring 2014!

PS. Interest towards these modern analytic methods seems to be growing, as after the workshop plans for tailored modelling training was initiated by a customer.
