implementation of international quality standards in management and production systems; investment in modern machinery and technology; Meanwhile, prioritizing the development of engineering experts are the three key factors that the leading transportation mechanical manufacturing enterprises in Vinh Hung – Vietnam are applying to strictly control the production quality.
In the traffic mechanics industry, compliance with standards is the ultimate responsibility of the manufacturer to ensure quality in production, as a small error can affect the structure of the entire project, and lead to disaster for businesses. Machine failure in the production process can be life threatening. This is why quality control in transport mechanical engineering is always a large and complex process.
Starting with HR…
Faced with a constantly changing economy, on the understanding that strengthening human resources is considered the key for businesses to rapidly improve and improve their competitiveness in the market, Vinh Hung JSC established a training and development budget for employees. and built a professional human resource management. ,
Each year, the enterprise has internal training plans and a budget is set aside for conducting certificate training courses related to the traffic mechanics industry. Through training and coaching, employees not only improve skills and professional knowledge, but they are also given the rights and duties to manage their tasks proactively and effectively.
In addition, the Quality Management System QMS: ISO 9001:2015 was also implemented jointly with BASE – an online business administration platform that allows to digitize and standardize all operations, linking all departments on a single platform . Then, all processes from order receiving, manufacturing to import and export are conducted smoothly to minimize errors and eliminate waste and inefficiency.
Implementation International Standards
Working globally, applying international standards is one of the fastest ways to demonstrate quality, compatibility and consistency to create a common language when dealing with customers. Understanding this, Vinh Hung has applied international standards to products and production processes.
Notably, Vinh Hung is the first enterprise in Vietnam to manufacture traffic mechanical products according to EN 1090 – EU Standard for Steel Structure Factory. Vinh Hung has selected the world’s leading corporation Bureau Veritas as an independent testing, inspection and certification entity for its production processes, while implementing standards such as EN 1090 or QMS: ISO 9001:2015. The selection of Bureau Veritas shows that the company has attached special importance to creating a professional functioning and production process from the very beginning. In addition, some specific standards of the major markets that Vinh Hung is visiting such as the IRC 83 standard (Indian market) are also studied and implemented by Vinh Hung to export products to this country.
To help employees maximize their efforts to do what they do best, standards for each stage of production are implemented in each department. From input material, semi-finished products to finished products are inspected by specialized QC department in independent laboratory with modern machinery system. For example, the welding process in Vinh Hung is performed in accordance with the Welded Manufacturing Quality Management System ISO 3834-2 by a team of welders who are accredited with AWS certification. With standard welding procedure in accordance with ISO 3834-2, each step in fusion welding of metallic materials ensures full-step traceability for the identification, control, prevention and handling of non-conformities in the process.
“Applying standards is the best way for us to gain knowledge from the world’s leading experts. This means we don’t have to work hard in the wrong places, but we can focus on creating the best products.” Mr. Shared by Vo Ta Luong – General Director of Vinh Hung JSC.
With the process of controlling product quality as per international standards and competitive price, trust and cooperation from world leading contractors like Acciona, Hyundai E&C, Daelim Construction, Rubrica Engineering, etc. to provide Vinh Hung a range of steel have received. Structure products for large scale projects in Asia: Malolos – Clark Railway project (MCRP – Philippines), Cebu Cordova Link Expressway bridge project, longest bridge project in East South Asia Temburong (Brunei).
Technology 4.0. innovation with
Looking ahead, Vinh Hung is exploring how it can tap 4.0 technologies to further increase its productivity and accelerate its growth. Mr. Vo Ta Luong explained: “For Vietnamese transport mechanical manufacturing enterprises, opportunities are opening up enormously in the context of Asia’s large-scale infrastructure development. There is no need to buy more machines or hire more workers to increase production. Instead, we are aiming to train high quality human resources with modern machines, databases and robots.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic has not happened, Vinh Hung has adopted simple digital tools such as centralizing data on the Google Cloud platform, digitizing the entire administrative process on the base platform and reaping the benefits. When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, businesses were only allowed to operate with 50% employees, but jobs were still controlled, operated smoothly, and the programming of these tools required human errors. was terminated.
It is the connection, availability and interactivity of information systems throughout the enterprise, from the administration department to the manufacturing plant, that is the foundation of information systems in the 4.0 era. “We believe that with the right direction and the support of technology, Vinh Hung will grow very quickly to compete with 100-year-old brands in the field of transportation mechanical engineering. Today the world is not a place where big fish beat small fish. rather than where faster fish eat slower fish.“- shared Mr Vo Ta Luong.
