if i'm ev'ing a mon, i attach the power item and constantly switch to a lv. 100 mon with 100% accurate moves that will guaranteed ohko the opponent. you don't even really need to track ev's then. just wait until you've used up 30pp worth of moves in a 1 ev battle, or 25 in a 2 ev battle, you know you've hit 250 ev's after 10 vitamins (different calcs apply to pokerus and alternate spreads, but that's easy enough to work out).
if the mon you are ev'ing is strong enough to 100% ohko, you don't even need to switch.
endure and sturdy mons complicate things a little further, but still simple enough to handle.
