Users would like to know if safety stock can be setup to only calculate based on Independent demand like forecast and sales orders and ignore any dependent demand. Example:

ItemA has safety stock setup
Method = MRP Planned
Bucket Days = 10
Percent = 1000

Sales order demand due day 5 qty = 10
Forecast demand due day 6 qty = 10
dependent demand due day 5 qty = 5

Users want the safety stock calculation to only use the qty = 10 sales order demand and qty = 10 forecast demand and ignore the dependent demand qty = 5. Is this possible?
