Over deze vacature

A very interesting position for an engineer that is interested in statistical analysis and setting up new processes in a high-tech environment.


Job Mission
The SPC Engineer will setup and maintain Control charts for NXE systems, starting with ATP tests (Acceptance Test Protocol) and critical CSRs (Customer Special Requests). You will work closely with the Global Quality SPC group and eventually identify CTQ (Critical to Quality) parameters for the downstream tests together with the Development & Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering and the Production Engineer for that competence. The end goal is to have 100% predictable product performance all the time.

As EF SPC Production Engineer you will contribute to the 4 main PE drivers:

  • Decrease cycle time
  • Decrease cost
  • Increase efficiency
  • Increase quality

You will have constant attention for safety. Although working from a competence group, flexibility is expected, to secure the EF output plans and cycle time roadmaps.

Next to the core job of sequence engineering you also contribute to the following 3 areas:

Continuous Improvement:

  • Continuously adapt, optimize operating instructions, process flow charts, routings, process parameters and indicators
  • Analyse the production process (Cycle time and Labor Hours), points out structural problems and bottlenecks, work out suggestions for improvements and initiates their implementation, often in close cooperation with the surrounded departments as Development, Supply Chain and Customer Support
  • Initiate improvements in how we as a factory perform our SPC checks, and strive for the ideal inline SPC solution.


  • Contribute to the rapid solution of complex faults and take the necessary initiatives and practical decisions
  • Determine if the population of a dataset is drifting
  • Investigate out of control situations
  • Arrange aftercare for SPC problems

New Product Introduction:

  • Uses knowledge in product or process development projects, in order to foresee production problems in the design phase and improve the manufacturability of the product
  • Suggest CTQs for the new product
  • Setup control limits before volume production begins

Context of the position
The sector Operations is responsible for the production of wafer scanners. The complete production process of the most advanced machines takes place within Manufacturing. The EUV Factory (EF) produces the newest generation wafer scanners. Within this Factory, Production Engineering (EF PS PE) continuously adapts, optimizes and supports the production processes of production (including the system installation and qualification process at the customer location). The holder of this position reports to the Group leader of EF PS Production Engineering.
