Default Optimizer cut list different from design cut list.

Like the title says...
My nephew designs all the cabinet projects we build. He brings the jobs to the CNC and we transfer the project to my computer. Same software versions and everything.
This last project, he noticed the 3/8" flat panel doors were not the correct sizes, some were missing, etc...
The difference is random and there is not a pattern we can find. One door is 1" too narrow, the next is 1/4" too short, the next two were skipped all together.
Strange part is, on his machine, we can run optimizer and all the parts layout correctly. On mine, they are wrong. On my computer, I can run a cut list report in Mozaik and it is correct, but after optimizer, they are wrong again.
Last night, I restarted and did this process over again and the nest came out correct.
I really need to be able to trust the nest 100% as this is a production operation and I don't have time to verify every size of every item prior to cutting.
Currently, it is only a $100 sheet of Alder-what next time???
I have sent the job to Mosaik Helpdesk so they are also looking into this but I like to ask this community as they knowledge here is powerful.

Thanks again,

Doug S

Only thing that comes to mind would be if somehow you had an old parts file in the optimizer and didn't overwrite it with the new parts from the updated cutlist. I know something like that has happened to me, and since you're dealing with 2 computers there's the possibility that something didn't get copied right. Not saying that's the problem, just that it seems like a possible scenario.

Small update:
I rebooted the computer and reran the nest and the new part sizes all matched up.
Mozaik thought it may have been a memory issue as it has never happened and they are not aware of others having this issue.
I will try harder to reboot my machine at least once a week but will check the sizes until I feel comfortable again.

I always turn the cnc and pc off at the end of the day. But I'm not out there with it full time either.

I have all of my software on a laptop and I just take gcode to the cnc pc anyway.
