On Friday the 10th of August 46 young maintenance professionals obtained the certificate for Smart Maintenance & Engineering Management. Awarding the certificates was the festive conclusion of the WCM Summer School 2018. In the previous week, the students attended lectures by professors from seven Dutch universities in the field of smart maintenance. The students could immediately use this theoretical knowledge for the practical case contributed by ASML: improving the maintenance & support planning processes.
Robert Dellemijn (ASML Customer Support):“In the operational planning of Customer Support safety and quality are our main priorities. The newest generation EUV machines leads to more complex repairs and maintenance. This demands process-improvements of the maintenance and service planning.”
The group of young professionals was composed of participants from ABB, Akzo Nobel Center, AVANS Hogeschool Breda, Fuji Film Manufacturing Europe, Generaal-Majoor de Ruyter van Steveninck Kazerne, Koninklijke Luchtmacht, MaxGrip, Nederlandse Spoorwegen, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, Schiphol Nederland, Shell Moerdijk, Shell Nederland Raffinaderij, SPIE Nederland, Stork Belgium, Tata Steel Europe, Technische Universiteit Delft, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, Thales Nederland, Universiteit Twente and Vitens Industriewater.
Visitors of the WCM Summer School presentations could vote for the winning group. Congratulations to the winning team of this year: Emilio Cervantes Pecheco (Universiteit Twente), Ingmar Bruinenberg (Koninklijke Luchtmacht), Laura Eggink (Tata Steel Europe), Daan Jenken (SPIE Nederland) and Stijn Dierikx (Shell Nederland Raffinaderij).
Joseph Whelan, directeur EUV Service Engineering ASML: “We are really impressed by all the major challenges you have recognized and explained. The participants provide a lot of interesting new ideas and perspectives.”
The WCM Summer School is planned again for 2019.
