From 1948 to 1953, Nezhevenko proposed a number of improvements in the design of cutting tools for lathes and developed highly productive methods of metalworking based on the use of various devices and attachments and on the principle of standardization of technological processes for short-run and unit production. The introduction of advanced labor methods proposed by Nezhevenko made possible a substantial reduction in the time required for machining of parts and an improvement in their quality.

He was a delegate at the Twenty-second Congress of the CPSU (1961).
