The entire value chain has been integrated and digitalized with Siemens’ Digital Enterprise portfolio, which includes the Xcelerator portfolio of software and Totally Integrated Automation (TIA). Xcelerator enables creation of the most accurate digital twin, melding model-based simulations with test data and real performance analytics with intelligent edge control. VinFast is using Teamcenter software as backbone of collaboration for product lifecycle management and NX software, a leading integrated solution for computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE), to develop the digital twin of cars and production. Teamcenter connects the digital twin with a consistent digital thread, which is helping VinFast increase speed and flexibility in development, optimize manufacturing processes and use the insights gained from product and plant operations to improve future performance. VinFast has also implemented Siemens Opcenter software (formerly Simatic IT Unified Architecture) to increase production speed and quality. This MES solution supports closed-loop manufacturing by driving real-time production data to the digital twin of product and enables innovation of product design and production operations.
Automation is realized by the modular
and flexible automation concept Totally Integrated Automation (TIA), that
controls and drives all productions. VinFast deployed Siemens' automation
equipment for its manufacturing lines in all shops: press shop, paint shop, body
shop, assembly shop, sub-assembly- and engine shop. Simatic
Controllers enable VinFast to automate factory operations such as robots or
conveyor lines, including safety functionality. VinFast uses the engineering
framework TIA Portal to program automation tasks from the press shop through to
the final assembly. Simatic HMI's are widely used in the factory, allowing
VinFast to operate and observe the status of machines and entire systems for
the production staff. Using Siemens' Industrial Identification products,
VinFast can track and trace parts and optimize the entire flow of materials. In
addition, Sinumerik controls guarantee highest efficiency and quality in their
powertrain machinery. Further portfolio provided by Siemens features network
components, power supplies, control products, low voltage distribution and
switchgears, an energy distribution system as well as motors and drives. The
comprehensive automation components from Siemens enable VinFast to build up the
factory with high quality of global standards.
"VinFast and their new production site are a great example of how the automotive industry is driving the digital transformation of manufacturing," says Bernd Mangler, Senior Vice President Automotive Solutions at Siemens Digital Industries. "We are proud that we contributed with our offerings to create the virtual and real production lines including the technology for continuous optimizations along the entire lifecycle of the equipment – and of course, all had to happen in record speed."
VinFast is under Vingroup- the largest private
enterprise and one of the leading technology, industry and service groups in
Vietnam. More information at: https://vinfast.vn/en/about-us
