Project and Program Management

Everson Tesla has developed an effective management philosophy which incorporates processing a project using a Program/Project Engineer heading each key program. A dedicated Team is established which includes design and quality engineering, manufacturing, cost accounting, and product control.

  • Technology and project feasibility analysis
  • Cost estimating & risk assessments
  • Design reviews
  • Configuration management
  • Scheduling, program tracking
  • MPO's (manufacturing process outline)
  • Inventory management
  • Prototype to production transition management

Design

Everson Tesla has a strong base in engineering that covers many of the engineering disciplines including electrical, mechanical engineering, material science and physics.
