Are you challenged by working closely together with our suppliers and ASML teams to ensure the right quality, on time delivery and costs of our parts and modules in our supply chain throughout the entire product life cycle? Do you like to turn the technology roadmap of ASML into industrialized solutions?
If yes, then join the Sourcing & Supply Chain Project Lifecycle Management (PLM) department as an Industrialization Lead.

Job Mission

As a Supply Chain (PLM) Industrialization Lead you work closely together with the supplier and ASML teams enabling the industrialization of parts and modules at our suppliers. These team focus on Quality, Logistics, Technology, Costs and Sustainability of complex modules. Teams exist of Supplier Quality Engineers, Logistic Supplier Management, Product Lifecycle Coordinators, Development Engineers, Sourcing Leads and Re-use experts. The Supply Chain Industrialization Lead uses the right expertise and project management skills to ensure the QLCTS roadmap targets are set and met on time, before release for volume.

Job Description

  • Creating and motivating a x-sector team to achieve industrialization targets at our suppliers taken into account the complexity and time pressure
  • Apply Early Supplier Involvement and Concurrent Engineering to meet the urgent time line
  • Drive for efficiency (and speed) by assessing the (n-tier) supplier process flow and applying bottleneck management
  • Defining and agreeing on the right QLTCS roadmap targets and actively give follow-up
  • Proactive reporting out the industrialization status towards the PLM Program Manager
  • If applicable report out status and (containment) actions in the appropriate level of our escalation boards
  • Challenging the technology specifications versus the manufacturability at supplier
  • Defining creative solutions in the n-tier supply chain of the supplier with the team to mitigate risk and issues
  • Keep track of the configuration of the first delivered parts/modules to secure commonality in the early phases


  • Master's degree with 5-15 years relevant work-experience
  • A successful Supply Chain Industrialization Lead adds value to our department with the following experience:
  • Proven track record in project management and leading x-sector teams
  • Proven track record to improve efficiency and effectivity in technical production environment
  • Experience in interfacing with suppliers on industrialization targets
  • Experience in out-of-the-box creative problem solving and solution thinking
  • Experience in (bottleneck management of) manufacturing processes

Context of this position

You start during the earliest phase of the Product Life Cycle. Based on the supply chain risk we define the complex parts for a new product. You will lead the process to bring one or more of these complex parts towards industrialization. If applicable you will be involved in supply chain design and supplier selection process. Once the supplier is known you will start the industrialization process with the supplier. Since the teams develop high tech modules against challenging timeline, most of the time material availability is at risk. We do apply concurrent engineering when creating the design and parts/module manufacturing at the supplier. While doing this you have to make sure you manage the timely industrialization of these complex parts during the execution of the manufacturing process at the supplier.

Examples of QLTCS roadmap targets you secure for the first deliveries, ramp up and volume are:

  • Quality: Analyze supplier feedback, Process FMEAs, optimize manufacturing flow (across suppliers), Yield, Material Notifications, Quality-docs;
  • Logistics: Supplier cycle time, Move rate at supplier, Flexibility of the move rate, Material availability;
  • Technology: Design FMEA’s, Technical issue management at supplier, Completeness design documentation;
  • Costs: Cost of Goods and total cost of ownership, Supplier investments;
  • Sustainability: Refurbishment/repair capabilities, Re-use of modules/parts

During this process, some of the foreseen risks become issues. Until the part/module is industrialized you are responsible to mitigate and ultimately solve these problems with the teams and supplier. This includes organizing a successful x-sector team with sufficient solving power, as well as regular report out towards senior management.
