Over deze vacature

For the NXE3500 the manufacturability and availability will be more important than ever. To achieve this we need architects that feel really owner of a large module on all aspects: both performance and industrialization. Traditionally ASML is very strong in performance, but less on industrialization in the early design phase. So we need an architect who both understands performance and industrialization, to secure that requirements on all aspects are met.

Take ownership of a large production module (like metro frame assembly) or milestone (like mechanical install). Write EPS/EDS with industrialization requirements, which are needed to for flawless integration and high quality of the production. Examples: qualification strategy, configuration, modularity, integration sequence, transport specs, incoming quality parts, tools, commonality, safety, self-diagnosis, recovery strategy, etc.

Also take part in the architect and system engineering discussions on performance, to find optimal concept solutions balanced over all aspects. Prevent sub optimized solutions, drive for maximum commonality.


  • Write EPS & EDS of the production module. Cascade & follow-up on requirements.
  • Perform studies. Find optimal (well balanced) solutions on all aspects.
  • Regular reviews/ carousels with architects of modules on the production module.
  • Review new concepts & design changes on industrialization aspects.
  • Identify and solve cross-project issues. Involve SE in case of important trade-offs
