An exciting international role for academics with 5-7 years work experience and interest for high tech and supply chain. ASML is looking for driven young professionals who can play a crucial role in the customer supply chain processes related to upgrades and installs close to/ in the factory of ASML’s customers.
ASML’s Supply Chain (SCM) is continuously aiming to better serve ASML’s customers, for example by providing complex upgrade services at the site of the client. During these events (a significant) part of the machine is replaced by modules that allow for e.g., increased output and enhanced specifications. These on-site upgrade activities create extremely demanding requirements for the supply chain processes, driven by the sensitivity of the parts (cleanroom handling only), the strict needs to minimize machine downtime and the constantly changing specifications of machines. Goal is to establish a true “field factory” set-up that allows the engineers to perform the installation with maximum efficiency and minimum downtime.
All these processes ultimately enable ASML’s clients to continue improving the performance of the laptops, tablets and smartphones that we use.

Job Mission

Ensure successful delivery of all supply chain requirements for all upgrade- and installation events in the region. Contribute to the supply chain team to ensure that the (thousands of) high-tech parts are delivered on-time, on-spec and at the right quality at the customer site.
