The issue, "When starting jobs on the Job card device, the Started quantity is not updated when jobs are being started after registrations have been transferred" Details for issue 572334 (dynamics.com) is easily replicatable and was occurring frequently for a client. This issue could be fixed by preventing workers who have been transferred from signing in to PFE.

This issue causes other errors in the process that create a lot of work to correct, all because there is no indication anywhere in the process. For example, a worker that has been transferred can start a job from a production order, and everything will look normal in PFE and in the Production Order details. If the user tries to complete the job, they will get an error stating that the quantity they entered does not match 0, which makes little sense to the worker. This production order now has to be manually corrected, while the user can continue to start jobs that will be impossible to complete through PFE.

If there was an indication anywhere during the process (at clock-in, at start job, at report progress, in PFE or in Production order details) that something was wrong, the time of the worker and the employee who has to correct it could have been saved.
