Planning and replenishment strategies – ASML

This project proposes a planning and replenishment strategy for components needed for tool completion (ASML’s service tools, toolsets and toolkits) and looks critically at the existing replenishment process. Furthermore, it maps the existing infrastructure at ASML: what is already in place, what are the gaps? Main buckets for tools incompleteness are defined, for example: is it a consumable tool, is it a spare that got defect, etc. Additionally, a literature study is executed on best known methods for dealing with incomplete goods on stock by other industries. What are the industry standards? These insights are then translated into the ASML environment.
