This volume presents the problem of providing a surrogate or synthetic human for designers and engineers. The book is intended for engineers interested in understanding how a computer surrogate human can augment their analyses of designed environments.
This book helps you to start modeling with AnyLogic -- a multi-method simulation modeling tool that supports different modeling techniques. Topics covered: Agent-Based Modeling; System Dynamics; Discrete Event Simulation; Pedestrian Simulation.
