Getting Started with anyLogistix

You are using anyLogistix, the only multimethod software for supply chain network design, analysis, and optimization.

anyLogistix allows you to create and configure supply chains by modifying their data within the tables of the corresponding scenario.

Supply chain scenarios are stored in a project, which can contain unlimited number of scenarios.

Starting anyLogistix for the first time

If you're using Studio version you will be asked to provide your license. In case of PLE version (Personal Learning Edition) you will be taken directly to the Welcome screen, which allows you to:

  • Create a new scenario.
  • Open one of the existing scenario examples.
  • Close the welcome screen to open an empty anyLogistix project.

Let us continue by creating a new scenario.

  1. Click the New Scenario button.
    anyLogistix will create a database for the new project, which might take a few seconds.

    anyLogistix automatically checks if a newer version is available. If you are using an older version, you will see a pop-up message prompting you to update to the latest version:

    Once the new project is created, you will be taken to the anyLogistix layout. By default anyLogistix creates project in the single user mode. It is a non-protected type of a project with no owner defined for it. If protection is required you can do either of the following:

    • Create a new project in the multiuser mode (protected by a user with admin type of rights).
    • Change the mode of the existing single user project.

    That's it. anyLogistix navigates us to its layout, allowing us to proceed with what we have previously chosen on the welcome screen. Since we left the welcome screen by clicking the New Scenario button, anyLogistix will now show the Scenario Properties dialog box, allowing us to quickly set up a new scenario. We could have also ended up with:

    • Empty anyLogistix project, allowing us to import a scenario, create new scenario of any experiment type, or explore anyLogistix features.
    • Opening any of the available anyLogistix examples, allowing us to modify its data and run experiments.

Now it is time to design your first supply chain!
