How Do We Create A Demand In ASCP That Does Not Impact The Safety Stock Calculation?

Goal

In our business we have short periods of very high demand that the business does not want to included in the safety stock calculation when using MRP planned %.

Example:

Weekly average is 100 pieces and we keep 3 weeks = 300. We have a huge promotion of 3000 for a one week period. We do not want to increase the safety stock for that specific demand as it would force us to order 3 x that promo period demand.

Is there any way to enter a demand that is not included in the calculation of safety stock?
