Simulation with AnyLogic/Agent-Based Modeling/Step 7. Running the model

Step 7. Running the Model

Build your project by clicking the Build Model Step 7. Running the model.gif toolbar button. If there are some errors in your model, the building fails and the Problems view appears listing all the errors found in your model. Double-click an error in the list to open the location of the error and fix it.

After the model is successfully built, you can start it. Running the simulation, you automatically bring the current model up to date.

Step 1. Creating a new model1.gif Start the model

  1. Click the Run Step 7. Running the model2.gif toolbar button and choose the experiment you want to run from the drop-down list. Your simulation experiment is called Bass Diffusion Agent Based/Simulation.

    In the case this model is the only one opened in the workspace at the moment you will be prompted to run this particular experiment. Later on this button will start the previously run experiment. To run any other experiment, right-click the experiment in the Project view and choose Run from the context menu.
  2. Having started the model, you will see the presentation window. It displays the presentation designed for your simulation experiment.
