Lead Project Engineer

Name : Ted Andreescu
Industry Type : Engineers
City & State : Austin,TX
Job Title Lead Project Engineer
Relocation Preferences : Texas
Objective : I would like to use this on line medium to briefly describe myself and my acquired skills: as a Lead Project/Systems Engineer, I offer an extensive blend of technical, business and educational expertise combined with customer service; additionally I have a genuine enthusiasm to improve system methods and practices having gained a solid understanding of current Engineering Design Methodologies. Here is a listing of broad range skills that I could bring to potential employers:

Project/Lead Systems Engineering and Process Management
Configuration Management/Leadership with respect to IPT (Integrated Product Team), Kick off meetings, PDR & CDR (Preliminary/Critical Design Review), HW/SW life cycle support validation, tollgate/milestone vs. available assets scheduling, validation planning, etc
Project Management in Development Planning & Processing, Gates 4b to 9 (project acceptance thru deliverables)
Technical Communication à System/Subsystem Specifications, RFP (Request for Proposal), White Paper generation, Qualification Test Report, Requirements Traceability Matrix, etc
HW/SW life cycle improvement & support
System/Subsystem Verification Implementation & Testing

It is worthwhile to point out that, throughout my work experience (especially in the Live Training & Simulation field) I have closely worked/collaborated with US Government entities and companies such as NAVAIR (Naval Air Systems Command), PEOSTRI (US Armys Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation), PMTRASYS (US Marines Program Management for Training Systems), RDECOM (US Armys Research Development & Engineering Command) , Saab Training Systems, Lockheed Martin (Simulation, Training & Support Division), General Dynamics (IT division), Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, L-3 Communications and Riptide Software just to name a few. Therefore, given my interaction and experience in these domains, I believe that being attentive to customer requirements and meeting/producing them on the
engineering floor speaks laurels for any business.

Please note that for the right opening, I'm therefore willing to relocate. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss with potential employers and answer any questions that they may have. Please contact me by phone at 1-321-948-7550 or by e-mail at tandrees[at]ymail.com.
Thank you for reading this letter/email and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
