Dear all, thanks for all the input.

That’s interesting, because that’s the main thing I am thinking about:
Which approach will break the most/need the most customization?

What flows do you think of exactly?

In my use case I only intend to add informative information to the
products, so my current impression is, that using products will give me
all the flows I need out of the box, while `stock.production.lot` will
be at least a bit cumbersome in the UI for users and need customizations
to make it work as expected for the user. (E.g. I think one would expect
the sold machine (lot) named on the invoice)

Ok. This seams to be somewhat common sence among the list.

Ok. I think I don’t need to bother you anymore but just make a decision.

So to get to more concrete question:
What could be possibly go wrong using product.product?
What do you expect to break?

The only thing I can think off that would be strange is, if they one day
decide to sell something completly different things too. Than all the
machine specific information won’t make much sense.
