Winner of the 2nd Annual SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Detroit Section/MITEF Vehicle Innovation Competition

On December 7th, Engineering Technology Associates, Inc. (ETA) was selected from amongst five finalists as the winner of the 2nd Annual SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Detroit Section/MITEF Vehicle Innovation Competition.

ETA presented the key benefits of the ACP Process at the event. These include a demonstrated capability to reduce product development costs by 35-40%, reduce product mass by approximately 20%, improve product performance (stiffness, NVH, crash/safety, durability) as well as reduce manufacturing and tooling cost through part consolidation.

The ACP Process is a proprietary, performance-driven, holistic product design development method which is based on design optimization. ACP incorporates the use of multiple CAE tools in a systematic process to generate the optimal design solution.
