Problem with HVAC - adding a setpoint manager

Hi! I'm modeling my single zone building using OpenStudio. I'm having a problem with my HVAC system because sometimes the heating and the cooling coil are working at the same time. image description

In this example the cooling system starts and then stops for a little time, and the interior temperature is very far from the cooling setpoint. The AVAC template I added to my model is a Packaged Rooftop Heat Pump. image description

I had an identical problem some weeks ago and I asked here in unmethours. At the time @rraustad suggested me to had another setpoint manager. Until the moment I didn't find how to add a setpoint manager in OpenStudio and I'm a little bit lost in this situation. Can you please explain me how to add a setpoint manager in my HVAC model? How can I solve this problem? Here is my model. Thank you
