Do you want to be part of the heart of ASML in the tension area between development, supply chain, manufacturing and field? Are you challenged by the time pressure of new product introduction? Do you want to lead a group of enthusiastic people? We might have an interesting challenge for you!

Job Mission

Interfacing ASML’s Business Lines, we manage the introduction, the (engineering) changes and the phase out of products – taking supply chain requirements into account.

Your project plan is the guardrail for a team of Project Coordinators managing their project deliverables and your consolidated view of the Product as a whole.
Introducing new products to customer sites requires a balanced spare part and tool stocking strategy – taking into account inventory cost and customer service. Next, systems at customers can get product enhancements or upgrades to newer configurations and return materials are being re-used. As an interface between Development and Supply chain, you are preparing and planning what is needed to execute this.
Towards the volume phase, you drive for a lean supply chain and plan for design maturity and planning maturity. If (new) supply chain issues arise, you are able to take this back to the right development channel via the process of issue resolution management.
