The sector Operations consists of Customer Support, Manufacturing and the supporting functions (Supply Chain Management, Integrated Business Planning, Corporate Real Estate and Environment Health & Safety).
The role of the Operations Strategies & Excellence (OSE) department within Operations is to add Operational Excellence by:

This department develops and leverages Operations’ talents in ASML and strengthens the connections on strategic topics with other sectors in ASML in particular Development & Engineering, Strategic Sourcing, Corporate functions and IT.

The scope of these programs is almost always cross department and often also impacts the sectors outside ASML Operations. The focus can be on combinations of Manufacturing, Field Support, Supply Chain Management, Planning and Facilities Management.
OSE focuses on the non-product related improvements. So projects and programs that are focusing on the ASML products are not in scope of the portfolio. The Programs on the OPS Portfolio are focusing on processes, ways of working and IT applications and support.
