  • You align with other departments, mostly R&D, that use the same data and similar reports to ensure efficient and correct use of the data.
  • You manage and maintain the growing FAB report portfolio, including fixing issues that don’t require ICT involvement.

You collaborate closely with the Engineering teams to minimize the impact of planned and unplanned tool-downtime. In case of problems, you determine action plans and report to the internal customers on a daily basis.This role is taken up about one week out of 7 and includes weekend work.
