Robert,

You can do it using ADVAN9 with NEQUILIBRIUM option in \$MODEL, and \$AESINITIAL
and \$AES blocks. E.g. (where A(13) is what is F in your example) :

\$MODEL NEQUILIBRIUM=1
COMP(COMP1)
....
COMP(COMP13)

\$PK
...

\$AESINITIAL
INIT = 0; 0=APPROXIMATE, 1=EXACT
A(13)=0.001
\$AES
E(13)=A(9)-A(13)-A(13)*A(10)/(KSS+A(13))-A(13)*A(12)/(KSS2+A(13))

\$DES
...

\$ERROR
Y = A(13)+EPS(1)

Regards,
Katya
