Repeating a task at a workshop is a method of automating mass production. By using the menu and selecting a task, the key can be used to toggle the repeating of a task. Tasks currently set to repeat are marked with a blue R. If the same workshop has multiple tasks marked as repeat, those tasks will be cycled.
Check your needs from time to time - you don't want to end up with, say, a gazillion rock doors in your stockpiles.
