This might be of interest -- its purpose is to pull items from a source queue into a target queue based on a setpoint that is calculated daily. Goal is to always pull enough items to keep target queue loaded (thereby minimizing items at the source queue).

Uses an "activity service block to meter flow into plant yard -- has two signals into the demand connector -- one to tell the how many items to bring in, the other to reset to zero for each new day. This keeps the unused demand from carrying over from one day to the next -- each day is a new calculation.

Maybe I have made this harder than it needed to be but it seems to work for my particular need.
