STEVE TEAHAN, PMP Salem, NH (603) 898-9533 LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/steveteahan Email: email@example.com Senior Management Professional Engineering and Program Management Leader with extensive managerial experience in the development and transition of complex sensor based electro-mechanical products. Have held key leadership positions in both engineering and manufacturing organizations. Strengths include product development, program management, developing cross functional teams and new product introduction. Led teams of 10 to 50 professionals with backgrounds in Systems, Electrical, Mechanical, Software, Optics and RF engineering. Successfully forged new professional relationships, strengthened leadership within the group, grew emerging talent and acquired new talent for new business opportunities. Active DOD Secret Security Clearance and Six Sigma Certified Black Belt. CORE COMPETENCIES PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT Created a Center of Excellence (COE) to support complex custom test equipment development for multiple Operating Units (OU) and diverse product technologies. This eliminated duplicate functions and improved standardization and reuse. Implemented Design for X (DfX) and advanced product screening techniques (ESS, HALT and HASS) to reduced transition time to manufacturing, improve product yields, and eliminate factory escapes. Developed a standard Engineering and Program Management process that implemented system engineering best practices to improve product development and achieved CMM and CMMI level 3 certifications. PROGRAM/PROJECT MANAGEMENT (PMP Certified) Led the successful transition of a major business ($8 to $10 M) from HR Textron (CA) to Textron Defense Systems (Wilmington, MA). Used Project Management best practices to define requirements, scope, schedule, costs, milestones, risks, personnel, and communications to bring projects to closeout. LEADERSHIP Experienced and skilled in managing across functional and organizational lines. Held key leadership/supervisory positions in Engineering, Manufacturing and Quality organizations. Led projects that spanned across organizational lines utilizing cross functional and cross disciplined teams Broke barriers to facilitate effective teamwork between engineering and manufacturing by improving communications (common goal) and developing standard processes. NEW PRODUCT INTRODUCTION Defined the product assembly and test strategies and acceptance requirements that enabled the successful transition of new products to production. Implemented process improvements to develop a standard transition to production process and a rapid transition process to reduce product delivery cycle time by 50% and improve first pass yields. PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE Textron Systems, Wilmington, MA 2006-2011 Director of Engineering (2008 – 2011) DFSS Six Sigma Certified BlackBelt (2006-2008) Textron Defense Systems, Wilmington, MA 1980-2006 Director of Test Equipment/Tooling (1999-2006) Engineer, Project Engineer, Manager (1980-1999) EDUCATION Bachelor of Science-Electronics Engineering, Wentworth Institute of Technology, Boston, MA. Steve Teahan Page 2 CAREER HIGHLIGHTS Textron Systems, Wilmington, MA 2006-2011 Director of Engineering (2008 – 2011) DFSS Six Sigma Black Belt (2006-2008) Lead participant and architect in the design, development and deployment of the Engineering & Program Management Standard Process.This resulted in CMMI Level 3 certification at two Operating Units: Textron Defense Systems (located in Wilmington, MA) and Textron Marine and Landing Systems (located in New Orleans, LA). Led a team consisting of subject matter experts from each of the 5 Operating Units that developed and deployed a common set of standard DfX guidelines/checklists (DfA,DfC,DfM,DfR,DfT) .This addressed the stakeholders VOC, GAP analysis (lack of producible designs) and leveraged Industry and Business Unit (Bell, Cessna) Best Practices. Led a cross functional multi-site team (design, manufacturing and test engineering, production planning and control, program management, purchasing and quality) from each of the 5 Operating Units to develop and implement a Production Transition Process.This enabled a timely and efficient transition of development programs to production.. Led a cross functional team that developed and implemented a Rapid Production Transition Process. This reduced the delivery of a functional product (complex sensor based electro/mechanical assembly) from contract award to the customer from 12 months to less than 6 months. Led an improvement activity (DMAIC project) to optimize the Systems Integration Lab (SIL) and resolve safety and compliance issues. Overcame cultural issues and implemented corrective actions, standard operating procedures, reorganizations, communications improvements and training. This achieved operational capability in support of a key customer milestone. Textron Defense Systems, Wilmington, MA 1999-2006 Director of Test Equipment/Tooling (1999-2006): Successfully developed and transitioned Sensor Fuzed Weapon (SFW) highly complex, state-of-the-art custom Test Equipment & Tooling for acceptance testing of Infrared, Laser and Radar components and assemblies into Full Rate Production (over 250 units per day). Received high praise from the SFW Customer. Won the Textron 2003 Nova and Chairman Awards for innovation for the Production, Focus Align & Attachment Process. The estimated cost savings in the assembly and test time and equipment costs was $8M over 5 years. Introduced new technology and test techniques to enable rapid production testing of complex sensor based electronic assemblies: accelerated temperature testing and multi axis vibration testing (HALT/HASS), parallel testing of units under test, networked testers to automate data collection and repair and optimization of software code. Formally recognized as a Center of Excellence (COE) for test equipment development for Textron Operating Units: Systems, Lycoming and HR Textron based on performance, capability, efficiencies and ability to support off-site development. Led the successful project to fully automate Engine testing (15 Test Cells) using state-of-the-art equipment at Lycoming (Williamsport, PA) overcoming both cultural and technical obstacles. Ensured FAA requirements were being met. Led the successful transition, upgrade and new development of test equipment and tooling from Optoelectronics (CA) – Detectors, Sensors and HR Textron (CA) – PWAs, ATEG to Textron Systems (MA). PROFESSIONAL SOCIETIES Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers – IEEE Member – Member of the Systems Engineering Effectiveness Committee. Society of Manufacturing Engineers – SME Member – Completed SME leadership training. MILITARY United States Air Force – Missile Communications Electronics Tech/Group Leader
