Context of the position

The Customer Supply Chain Management (CSCM) team is responsible for meeting service level agreements (SLAs) with
customers. System downtime costs customers up to a million USD per day so SLAs are extremely tight, with downtime
waiting for parts and tools limited to as little as 20 minutes per system per week. CSCM manages such challenges in a
global network with thousands of unique spare parts and delivers true customer satisfaction through differentiated and
affordable logistics services. ASML’s aggressive time-to-market strategy and increasing system functionality means
machines are often upgraded at the customer during their lifetime. CSCM’s highly educated workforce drives planning and
execution of the logistics aspects of commercial upgrades, field change orders, machine shipments and transfers.
