Simulation software like AnyLogic is frequently used across many industries to model complex workflows of real-world applications. You can use these models to solve actual problems, and many of the questions that customers have can be framed as reinforcement learning tasks. However, by design, most simulation software providers do not have an integration with tools like Ray RLlib to apply reinforcement learning to their models directly.

We show how Pathmind leverages the best of both worlds by connecting existing simulation models to modern reinforcement learning tools. In particular, we discuss the special challenges we face and how we use Ray to address them by walking you through a concrete example.
