Over deze vacature

A very interesting position for an engineer who feels challenged by improving the production process to ensure product quality, short lead-times, high efficiency and ‘short time to market’ for Production. The sector Operations is responsible for the production of wafer scanners. The complete production process of the most advanced machines takes place within Manufacturing.


To design, maintain, and optimize production processes and adapt to changed output requirements. Develop and apply methods of measuring the performance of the production process. Support the Production in order to ensure product quality, short lead-times and ‘short time to market’.

As EF PS Production Engineer SQ you mainly focus on maintenance and optimizations of the system qualification. You follow the progress of the NXE systems on the shop-floor, looking for opportunities to improve. All disturbances that occur during execution have to be analysed and prioritized, to have a successful follow-up at the right solving party. Some you can solve yourself, other issues have to be ‘sold’ to other parties. Your interpersonal skills come to use. Why is it needed to solve these issues? You are capable of convincing others how they can help the factory.

New product introduction:

  • Brings his knowledge to bear on (new) product or process development projects, in order to foresee production problems in the design phase and in order to improve the manufacturability of the product and test design.

Continuous iprovement:

  • Continuously adapts, optimizes operating instructions, process flow charts, routings, process parameters and indicators
  • Analyses the production process, points out structural problems and bottlenecks, works out suggestions for improvements and initiates their implementation, often in close cooperation with the surrounded departments as Development, Industrial Engineering, Supply Chain and Customer Support
