1 The free PLE (Personal Learning Edition) license is restricted to be used solely for classroom instruction and personal learning. See the license agreement for more details.

2 The AnyLogic University Researcher license can only be purchased by educational institutions. The University Researcher license is restricted to use in public research activities only.

All editions of AnyLogic can be installed and run simultaneously on the same computer.

Limitations in AnyLogic PLE

  • Maximum 10 agent types in a model.
  • Modeling time is limited to 5 hours in all libraries except the Process Modeling Library.
  • Maximum 50 000 dynamically created agents (for example, by the Source block) in a model.
  • Maximum 200 agent populations & flowchart blocks in an agent type.
  • Maximum 200 system dynamics variables (flows, stocks, dynamic variables) in an agent type.
  • The OptQuest optimization engine has the following limitations: 500 iterations and 7 optimization parameters (decision variables) per experiment.
