ETA’s continual growth, evolution, and innovation over 4 decades in the CAE space
1983 - 1993
ETA was founded in 1983 and within three years was established as a tier-one supplier to Ford, GM, and Chrysler, in addition to providing engineering services to OEMs and suppliers in US and Asia.
Our staff and services built a strong foundation for our next milestone: developing CAE software tools and training CAE engineers as required by the auto industry.
1993 - 2003
ETA becomes a CAE partner to the US & Asian OEMs and a supplier for full vehicle programs. We began developing software based on LSTC technologies. This decade marks 10 years of expertise in full vehicle CAE (crash/safety, durability, and NVH) and the development of software tools such as FEMB, VPG, and Dynaform. These tools enhanced product design and development and improved productivity as CAE entered a new era of virtual engineering.
Full Vehicle Programs
10+ years of service including 12 full vehicle programs covering all aspects of crash and safety
Expansion into Software
Developed software built to address industry needs for FE analysis (Pre/Post, durability, crash test environment, and stamping)
Establishment of CAE Partnerships
Established full vehicle development partnerships across Asia, Europe, and the US
ETA is established as a full vehicle CAE consultant and international crash and safety expert in CAE simulation
2003 - 2013
ETA invests in advanced technologies such as light-weighting, advanced material, and process to reduce cost and time for product design and development. We innovated a new holistic, design-driven, patented optimization process called the Accelerated Concept To Product (ACP) Process.
The ACP process provided a holistic optimization gateway to reduce product (structure) weight regardless of material
Began using advanced high-strength steel, aluminum, and carbon fiber materials for light-weighting
ACP reduced the cost of material, consolidated the number of parts, and reduced the cost of tooling and manufacturing
ACP reduced product design duration and time to market through CAD, design, and simulations
2013 - 2022
ETA leverages Big Data and AI/ML/ROM technologies, three decades of CAE experience, experience developing niche software solutions, and product and process optimization for faster and more accurate solutions.
Big Data, AI/ML
Leveraging AI/ML/ROM to reduce the duration of the traditional optimization process
Providing faster and more accurate solutions using AI/ML and our advanced products such as VPG Suite and ACP OpDesign
