Continuous Production


a set of continuous technological processes organized into a production line, a section, a shop, or an entire enterprise. Continuous production is characteristic of industrial sectors turning out a uniform basic product, such as metallurgical products; of sectors engaging in mass production of products assembled from components into a single unit, such as motor vehicles, tractors, and clothing; and of sectors in which continuity of production is dictated by the nature of the technology, such as electrical power generation and the production of chemicals and food.

Continuous production ordinarily reduces the required production time, promotes increased labor productivity, and ensures fuller use of fixed assets and acceleration of the rate of turnover of stocks. It is most effective with flow production. With the acceleration of scientific and technological progress, the sphere of continuous production has expanded significantly through mechanization and automation not only in primary but also in auxiliary production.
