It is indeed "the nature of the beast", but no means around it even if you
would use another system (transactions which influence eachother should be
processed together). Best thing I found to do on the whole is to process
transactions per department (or range), and processing is only allowed if
the department has no (0) errors.  Departments should be "independent" (ex:
no employees from a different dept range should work on the same Mfg
Order).  
If you process people who worked together on an MO you also should watch
out for crew clock (this influences machine time and therefore overhead
cost in some cases).
