Acerta turns complex manufacturing data into actionable insights
Driven by data science and industrial experience, Acerta helps precision manufacturers turn complex production data into actionable insights.
More than half of our in-house engineers are experts in data science and ML/AI technologies. Together, our team combines the ability to operationalize ML/AI with in-depth knowledge of the automotive, transportation, and precision manufacturing industries to unlock hidden value contained within vehicle data.
Acerta's origin story
It all began with machine learning (ML) algorithms developed by our co-founders – Greta Cutulenco, Sebastian Fischmeister, and Jean-Christophe Petkovich – in the world-renowned engineering laboratories at the University of Waterloo. Their collaboration resulted in Acerta LinePulse, a suite of SaaS solutions for precision manufacturing to enhance on-station and end-of-line testing, accelerate root cause analysis, and improve first-time through (FTT) yield.
Out of LinePulse grew our second offering, Acerta Professional Services: customized solutions developed according to customer data and specific needs. These services leverage our team’s domain expertise acquired through years of working on machine learning and artificial intelligence (ML/AI) solutions for automotive and off-highway vehicle manufacturing.
