Pre-loading queues

Pre-loading queues

Hi,

I have being going through the forms and I can't find the answer to my problem.

I have a model of a production line and I need to pre-load the queue's to match the actual on the line. For example if there is 12 units in the queue when the line starts in the morning I need to be able to enter 12 into the storage bins. I have tried using "warm up period" but I need to put an exact figure in for the queue. I have also tried using the "Start-Up" but when the units empty from the storage bin the line stops running in the simulation. I need to have eg. 12 units in the storage bin when line starts and when the 12 are gone the storage bin fills and empty's as normal.

Most likely there is a simple answer to my problem but I am a novice at simul8 and can't figure out how to solve this problem.

I would greatly appriciate any help.
