    1. First line technical support within System Integration by resolving 80% of the progress issues, reducing production disturbances and allow PE/ME to focus on structurally solvingtechnical issues (2nd line support);
    2. Support operational / structural improvements in and beyond the work center to decrease install and customer complaints, material complaints and improve process and product quality by amongst others handling and executing DN’s;
    3. Build up competences and training to improve skills and qualification level and to have dedicated trainers within the work center;
    4. Support NPI with manufacturing knowhow (tooling processes and means & methods) for smoother introduction of new products;
    5. Support System Integration if dedicated work center support (20%) is needed to enhance knowledge exchange and possible input for structural improvements;
    6. Build incidental and additional support for field issues if specific knowledge is required to enhance faster field issue resolution.
