The way I understand lot assignment to work is if a receipt contains a
lot number, that is the lot number assigned (unless it already exists
for another part number).  If the receipt doesn't contain a lot number,
it will assign one according to the system parameter logic.

So.. In your situation I would cut one S/O and make 17 receipts.
