Reverse simulation

Gentlemen, Good afternoon.
Is there any way to create a reverse simulation in PlantSimulation?
I'll try to explain better: I own a date for the delivery of a product, and would like to create a schedule to tell me when I need to start production for the process to end on that date.
I even thought about something simulate the date that I have back, but EventController need to tell the time back as well.

Any suggestions on this?

look in the help!

You can call it in the init or in the reset method. You could calculate the creation dates for the MUs (source - delivery list) based on the scheduled finish dates and the sum of production times + waiting and transport times.
