BPCS architecture often places work-in-process in members of files named 
after the work station of the user.  This is no problem if the user does one 
step right after another in sequence, and the work station naming does not 
eat up so many characters that the member naming is corrupted.  Are your 
workstation sign-on session names 8 characters or less?

However, when users have multiple sessions at one physical device, and work 
flow means they have to jump around between discontinuous duties, they can 
forget which session-id was the one where they left off a series of jobs, and 
then try to continue from a different session, which has nothing in the 
correspondingly named work area.  

We used to have this problem in end-of-month until I persuaded accounting to 
write session-id on relevant check lists by facility.

We still have this happen a lot to us with labor ticket input & shop order 

We are on BPCS 405 CD Mixed Mode AS/400.
