Your challenge

Are you the enthusiastic, talented intern we’re looking for?
iXR is one of the largest medical divisions within Philips. It delivers customer specific systems for minimal invasive surgery all over the world. History has shown that the production start date of an order can move over time depending on the requested date. The reason for a specific move can vary but it can have a major impact on the production plan and material sourcing. Accuracy does therefore not only matter during the surgery itself but also in the planning and production.
