Context of the position

The mission of The Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) team is to run successful ASML product roadmaps into optimal supply chain solutions. As such, PLM is responsible for securing material availability for ASML's new systems during proto phase, early shipping and initial ramp up. This involves the planning and release of new and changed materials throughout the supply chain from system development & engineering through suppliers and manufacturing to customers. In a fast-paced industry, PLM is involved in system development from day one - defining logistics requirements and identifying potential risks in suppliers' design and production processes. In the spirit of concurrent engineering, this happens while the system is still being developed, so specifications, timing and resources are constantly subject to change. Hence PLM drives timely delivery of Bill of Materials and technical documentation during development, and ensures supply chain and in-field infrastructures can handle the new products. It also manages the highly dynamic materials critical path for new products to maximize transparency and minimize delays.

Other information

Supply Chain Management (SCM) is an industry-leading operations organization, responsible for ensuring material availability to ASML's factories and customers. Our DNA contains customer focus, concurrent engineering, virtual integration plus the ability to thrive in a volatile market, accelerate the supply chain and deliver creative solutions. SCM plans up to four years ahead while customer requirements and system bill of materials can change at any time. Any break in material availability can have an unacceptable impact for our customers. So SCM must proactively identify and solve potential issues by working closely with our technical departments and customers, and actively manage deliveries from an extensive supplier base.
