Attribute set can be used to generate various lot/serial control series. We assume we should require it based on Business Partner, for better identification/tracking.
case 1.vendor ship products with attribute set 1 we generate lot from lot control series from header.
case 2. vendor 1 ship with material receipt goods with product attribute set 1. and same product shipped by vendor 2. with lot control series 2.
improvement: add new tab to ad_attributeset as e.g ad_attrbiteset_controll. where admin able to define col1. business partner col2 . Lot Controll (tabledirect) col3 Serial No Controll (tabledirect) optionally col4. type Lot/Serial Control we could use it for show hide fields for simpler entering definition.
Usage: When user creates material receipt system will check lot control definition and if exists on tab then use them if none using header lot (same for S/N)
