Other information

The EUV System Integration Department within the D&E organization integrates the changes on system level. Clarity on project progress is key. Clarity on Virtual release and integration processes will become more and more essential in ASML product release. Creating the VI processes in System Integration is an enabler in creating upstream release processes we need to verify the growing amount of System Configurations at increasing time to market.
