Link multiple apps to one work instruction

I have multiple operations at one work cell that have separate apps, but I would like to have them share a common work instruction.
I’d like to have the option to enter the work instruction app while they are in the middle of using it for entry.
My road block is, how do I have them leave my production tracking app, go to a common work instruction, and come back to the production tracking app after. They would be entering the work instruction from 1 or 3 different apps, so not sure how to make it just go back to the starting point.
I don’t want to complete the production tracking app as then they will lose their stats.
Appreciate the help! The ideal would be if there was a way to display an app within the master layout of the production tracking app, I supposed - so that they can still use the navigation buttons from the production tracking. Thanks!
