ASML System Upgrade integrator in Veldhoven, Netherlands


The Upgrade integrator is responsible for the planning, preparation and execution of system and module upgrades on prototype systems (building a prototype by integrating modules) as well as 1st time upgrades in the field (building the first upgrade of a Commercial Upgrade Package and execute the Alpha-test of this package). You coordinate the whole process of upgrades on a system.

Job Mission

The Upgrade Integrator works closely with the Upgrade Project lead to plan and execute defined upgrade packages and or engineering changes (ECs) on the ASML systems within the System Integration department. Overall responsibility is to combine all ECs defined in an upgrade package into an optimized upgrade sequence and recovery, taking into account dependencies, resourcing, tooling, materials, and other prerequisites. The Upgrade Integrator will work with the Integration Project lead to effectively execute the defined upgrade plan. During the execution phase the Upgrade Integrator will lead all upgrade efforts, report daily progress/delays, and escalate issues as they surface. The Upgrade Integrator supports engineering, research and development, and manufacturing in the testing of optical, mechanical and electrical modules and sub-systems, and the integration and test of complex systems. Also provides field support through the performance of installations and upgrades of complex capital equipment and systems.

Job Description

Job DescriptionAs Upgrade Integrator you are responsible for the overall plan concerning the different upgrades of the machines within your platform. You are allocated to an Integration/Upgrade Project, upgrading a proto-or 1st time field-system by integrating modules/packages. You interface with the other project leaders/coordinators (integrators), system test engineers, system engineers, configuration engineers, proto engineers and representatives of the operational sectors. It is expected that you can think and work in terms of:

  • Make the link between system functions and configuration requirements
  • Optimize the integration strategy and design/translate this strategy into a executable plan using upgrade impact as a parameter
  • Define the contents of the upgrade packages and coordinate the execution of the upgrade
  • In the lead for preparation, planning and execution and reporting to upgrades aligned with master plans from program management
  • Reporting on Upgrade/configuration status of integration systems.
  • Release system configuration baselines to the operational sectors
  • Assist in releasing of tested upgrade packages (high level content defined by system engineering) to factory and field with an optimized sequence and recovery to minimize downtime.
  • Reporting on progress of package release.
  • Produces clear, concise documentation in defined ASML formats.
  • Gathers information from drawings, specifications and design engineers necessary upgrade and sequence creation.
  • Assists in qualifying product for shipment.
