  Management; however, the lot and serial attribute functionality may be
  implemented for both Oracle Warehouse Management enabled inventory
  organizations and inventory organizations that are not Oracle Warehouse Management enabled.
  Oracle Warehouse Management supports forms and APIs to populate, maintain,
  and use the lot and serial attributes.

  R12.1
  Attribute Functionality
  Oracle Warehouse Management supports forms and APIs to populate, maintain,
  and use the lot and serial attributes.

  Warehouse Management is not installed.

  Setup/Enable Lot Attributes DFF:

1. Inventory : Setup : Flexfields : Descriptive : Segments

2. Unfreeze
