Job Description


Are you a bachelors or master's student in Statistics or Industrial Engineering looking for an apprentice internship? Does Spotfire and Matlab interest you? Do you understand correlation and causation? Then this internship might be interesting to you!

Background information

The system industrialization department is responsible for industrializing serviceability, reliability and cost aspects of ASML's advanced lithography systems. These systems are extremely complex and have many subsystems and failure modes.

When these manifest and start making a significant impact on the availability of the system, containments and solutions have to be identified. These solutions can have a large lead time. Once available they will typically not be installed at the same time on all... machines.

Your assignment

There will be two assignments, based on your level of experience and knowledge you will be placed on the most suited assignment as mentioned below.
• Correlation and causation in availability trends.

It is quite a challenge, because of the complexity of the information structure and the size of the operational installed base to have accurate causal inferences of the impact of solutions on average availability. It could also be for instance that, by the market demand, that the requested production is just not high. Availability is the time the system is available to run its intended function. Productivity capabilities depends on the product as well as on the machine's specificities. The goal is to make a step with automating availability trends against WPD, given all the context factors that exist from a customer's perspective.

Tasks may include but not limited to
• Learn about availability engineering (inc. adagio wow);
• Create relevant data and information and tooling landscape;
• Take the 3600 IBS as subject of the investigation, map out a timeline of availability and implemented solutions;
• Investigate and identify example of both causal directions (WPD influence on availability, availability loss impacting WPD), taking into account the implementation dates of solutions with a known anticipated gain;
• Possibly come up with alternative metrics to describe reliability performance as a function of machine utilization/productivity related KPI's;
• Set up automated analysis.
• Optimizing feedback to improve availability.

When ASML is designing new systems, we want take the right lessons learned at the right time from our installed base of machines at our customers as well as from the machines and rigs in our factory. SEveral potential information sources exist to log issues and orders as well as on the machines status and events. Some tools exist already but refinements and evaluation might be necessary to really benefit from them. Cognisearch being one of them.

In this assignment we are particularly interested in using machine learning techniques to provide automated feedback on potentially structural issues which limit a system's availability capability.

Task may include but not limited to
• Learn about availability engineering and the design phases;
• Create or gather relevant data and information and tooling landscape in the factory, the industrialization department and the field;
• Map the stakeholders for the various data sources;
• Take the 3800 as a subject of the investigation;
• Summarize existing automatic feedback systems;
• Make recommendations and summarize bottlenecks (cognisearch, eagle, manual analyses);
• Learn about service, availability engineering and cycle time engineering;
• Recommendations for improving existing tools/data flows.

Your Profile

To be a perfect match for this internship, you
• Have a bachelor or masters in Statistics, Industrial Engineering, Engineering of complex machines, Information Theory, or Data Mining;
• Are familiar with data processing and analysis tools such as spotfire, power bi, excel, matlab;
• Understand correlation and causation and analytics;
• Understand wafer productivity and how this is measured, and the important context information is;
• Are solution oriented and have a hands-on mentality;
• Have good communication skills in English (verbal and written)

This is a bachelor or master's internship with the duration of 6 months, for 4-5 days a week, starting as soon as possible.

Please note that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a school for the entire duration of the internship.

This position requires access to U.S. controlled technology, as defined in the United States Export Administration Regulations. Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such U.S. controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access U.S. controlled technology.

Change the world – one nanometer at a time

Become an intern at a Dutch company that’s a global industry leader. You’ll gain valuable experience in a highly innovative environment – one that sparks your imagination and creativity. In addition to a monthly internship allowance of maximum €600 (plus a possible housing and free public transport), you’ll get practical guidance from experts in the field and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic team environment.

ASML - be part of progress

ASML is a high-tech company headquartered in the Netherlands. We manufacture the complex lithography machines that chipmakers use to produce integrated circuits, or computer chips. What we do is at the heart of all the electronic devices that keep us informed, entertained and connected. Every day, you use electronics that simply wouldn’t exist without our machines.

Behind ASML’s innovations are engineers who think ahead. The people who work at our company include some of the most creative minds in physics, electrical engineering, mathematics, chemistry, mechatronics, optics, mechanical engineering, computer science and fields which are not technical oriented.

We believe we can always do better. We believe the winning idea can come from anyone. We love what we do – not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard.

Students - getting ready for real-world R&D

We’re a global team of about 39,000 people of 140 different nationalities and counting. Headquartered in Europe’s top tech hub, the Brainport Eindhoven region in the Netherlands, our operations are spread across Europe, Asia and the US.

In such an environment, your colleagues may be sitting next door, or they could be thousands of kilometers away in a different country – or even working for a different company.

An internship at ASML is the opportunity to get to know not only the world of industrial-strength R&D, but yourself – you’ll discover just what excites you most. Will you design a part of the machine, or make sure it gets built to the tightest possible specifications? Will you write software that drives the system to its best performance, or work side-by-side with the engineers of our customers in a fab, optimizing a system to the requirements of the customer?

How will you be part of progress?
