Role and responsibilities

Cost Of Operation is important for our customers for the upcoming nodes. ASML can achieve customer requirements by keeping design costs for next generation systems under control as well as by making the system faster. As a D&E Application Engineer Yieldstar Throughput (YS TPT) you work within the Integration Cluster YS Throughput with a small team together with the Architect and System Engineer on TPT models, validation of the models, the analysis of throughput related issues and TPT system integration across the several YS platforms.

In the position you are expected to travel to customers and operate on-site for a period of one or more weeks at the time as such securing a close link with the customer environment the solutions are targeted for.

- Design, develop and maintain analysis tooling to enable budget and model validation as well as fast troubleshooting of TPT issues. Typical programming languages are Matlab and/or Python
- Analysis of TPT issues, pinpoint which delivered module and/or SW combinations caused the performance issue and drive together with the module owners for a solution.
- Creation of models to describe and predict TPT behavior of the systems
- Validation of created TPT models and budget breakdowns
- Data and performance analysis. Monitor tool and fleet data over time, develop performance indicators and implement control limits
- Get familiar with HW and SW flows that impact TPT and drive improvements in this area
- Drive improvement processes to minimize the amount of TPT deviations (for example by automated tests or improved ways of working for teams)

Education and experience

- MSc in Engineering, Physics or Computer Science
- Customer solution orientation and affinity with the development of workflows to be implemented in Software Application solutions
