The spatio-temporal production process is considered and the necessity of its organization on the basis of lean technology is justified. The role of the basic tool for organizing a lean production flow - Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) - is noted and the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) used in continuous production has been calculated. It was found that the system of general maintenance and repair of equipment is a key tool to improve the efficiency of the organization of production processes in continuous sequential production.
