Siemens has announced that VinFast, Vietnam’s first motor car manufacturer, has selected a suite of tools from Siemens PLM Software to help realize its plans for next-generation automotive and transportation design.

Siemens is providing a digitalization solution across the entire automotive OEM value chain, which can help enable VinFast to meet its goals of creating the first Vietnam-made automobile and eScooter brands and promote the development of Vietnam’s industrial and manufacturing sector.

“Siemens PLM Software is proud to form this excellent partnership with VinFast in the first national car project in Vietnam, to help VinFast accelerate its innovation cycle,” said Mr. Alex Teo, Managing Director and Vice President of Siemens Industry Software for South East Asia. “The vast portfolio of Siemens solutions that VinFast plans to deploy is a demonstration of the trust our customers place in our proven capabilities in taking products from the digital world to the real world.”

According to Mr. Jason Buxton, Chief Information Officer at VinFast, using the combined power of both product lifecycle management and manufacturing operations management technology is a key part of VinFast’s digitalization journey. “To drive innovation within the automotive industry, it is essential to have the right technology in place,” he said. “We feel that Siemens’ best-in-class solutions can empower automakers and the vehicle electrification supply chain to reduce development time and deliver high-quality solutions, with the ability to adapt to changes easily at every stage of the process.”

VinFast plans to take advantage of a connected digital twin across both design and manufacturing. It plans to use an integrated digital platform including the Teamcenter® portfolio for digital lifecycle management, including the Teamcenter solution for product costing to support cost and value engineering, and the Tecnomatix® portfolio, the industry-leading digital manufacturing software, combined with SIMATIC IT UA for Discrete Manufacturing covering the MES (Manufacturing Execution System) layer.

Teamcenter connects the digital twin with a consistent digital thread, which can help 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 recently announced to the market that the company is also launching the first Vietnamese electric car. Using a connected PLM and MES digital enterprise solution will prove to be critical to achieving this goal. By creating a digital enterprise, VinFast can take advantage of new and disruptive technology across each phase of their operation to reduce cycle time, increase yield and foster new business opportunities.
