In the project USEfUL, simulations are used for the evaluation of novel logistics concepts, since real-world evaluations are very cost intensive. However, no simulation tool can provide a holistic solution to high-detail small-scale solution and low-detail large-scale simulation at the same time. To increase simulation capabilities, we enhanced two simulation tools, AnyLogic and MATSim, to run in lock step. This provides a single solution for different simulation needs. Furthermore, a job-based simulation cloud was designed to reduce simulation costs while preserving data security.
