Maintenance & Reliability Consulting Services



Our Training Philosophy

Our training philosophy targets university graduates who are well-versed in theory and possess a solid understanding of the fundamentals of science or engineering. However, they may lack practical 'how-to' information typically gained through years of on-the-job experience.

By acquiring this practical knowledge in a condensed timeframe, participants gain a unique opportunity to learn problem-solving and troubleshooting skills to apply upon their return to their workplace.

We continuously monitor and evaluate our courses in the areas of Technology & Engineering to ensure their relevance and effectiveness, aligning them with the latest international standards. We understand the importance of ensuring that participants remain competent and at the forefront of today's technology.

Our firm is independent, with no obligation to promote any proprietary products or services. This independence allows us the flexibility to selectively recommend only those products, methods, and services that we believe best suit our clients' objectives and goals.

Our Training Methodology

Our training methodology is built on three key pillars:


Comprehensive Curriculum:

We design our training programs with a comprehensive curriculum that covers the latest industry standards, best practices, and emerging technologies. Our courses are developed by seasoned experts in maintenance and reliability, ensuring that participants receive up-to-date and relevant information.


Hands-On Learning:

We strongly believe in the power of experiential learning. Our training sessions include hands-on exercises, case studies, and simulations that provide participants with practical skills and the ability to apply theoretical concepts in real-world scenarios. This approach fosters a deep understanding of maintenance and reliability principles.


Customization for Client Needs:

Recognizing the diversity of industries and organizational requirements, our training programs are customizable. We work closely with clients to understand their specific challenges and tailor our courses to address their unique needs. This ensures that participants gain knowledge and skills that are directly applicable to their daily operations.


At GVL Engineering, we prioritize an interactive and engaging learning experience. Our training sessions encourage active participation, fostering a collaborative environment where knowledge is shared, and best practices are discussed. We are committed to empowering individuals and teams with the tools and insights they need to drive positive change in maintenance and reliability within their organizations.



Our Firm offers highly structured short courses in Applied Industrial Technology, presented in an intensive format ranging in duration from two to five days. The courses are primarily on technical subjects at a post-graduate level and are designed for practicing scientists and engineers with a wide range of backgrounds but lacking in troubleshooting experience. They are practical in orientation, incorporating a minimum of theoretical material.

We assume that the participants either work at, or will shortly be working in, the technology covered, and are attending to obtain information of current practical application. It is also expected that the participants already have sufficient theoretical background in the field to understand the often-detailed practical information, and that they are highly motivated and able to absorb large amounts of information in a short period of time.



Holistic Maintenance and Reliability Approach

At GVL Engineering, we take a holistic and proactive approach to maintenance and reliability services, recognizing that a well-maintained and reliable asset base is critical for achieving operational excellence. Our approach is centered on three key principles:

Strategic Assessment:

We begin by conducting a thorough strategic assessment of our clients' current maintenance practices and reliability frameworks. This involves a detailed analysis of equipment health, maintenance processes, and historical performance data. By understanding the existing state, we identify areas for improvement and develop a tailored strategy that aligns with organizational goals.


Customized Solutions:

One size does not fit all in maintenance and reliability. We believe in providing customized solutions that address the specific needs and challenges of each client. Whether it's implementing predictive maintenance technologies, optimizing preventive maintenance schedules, or enhancing workforce skills, our services are designed to be adaptable and aligned with the unique characteristics of our clients' operations.


Continuous Improvement:

Our commitment to continuous improvement is ingrained in our approach. We work collaboratively with clients to implement changes, monitor performance, and adapt strategies as needed. By fostering a culture of continuous improvement, we ensure that maintenance and reliability practices evolve with technological advancements, industry standards, and organizational growth.

Key Components of Our Approach:

Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM):

We leverage RCM principles to determine the most effective and efficient maintenance strategies for each asset. This involves identifying critical components, failure modes, and implementing strategies that maximize equipment reliability while optimizing maintenance costs.

Data-Driven Decision-Making:

Our approach is data-centric, utilizing advanced analytics and predictive maintenance technologies. We harness the power of data to identify patterns, predict potential failures, and prescribe proactive maintenance actions, enabling clients to make informed decisions that minimize downtime and extend asset life.

Training and Knowledge Transfer:

We recognize the importance of building internal capabilities. Our services include comprehensive training programs that empower client teams with the knowledge and skills needed to sustain and continually improve maintenance and reliability practices.


By adopting this holistic approach, GVL Engineering aims to be a trusted partner in guiding organizations toward a future of enhanced reliability, reduced downtime, and optimized operational performance. We are dedicated to helping our clients achieve a competitive edge in their respective industries through strategic maintenance and reliability solutions.


Root Cause Failure Analysis

Our methodology for performing RCFA includes:

  • Defining the Problem

  • Investigating the Problem

  • Identifying Root Causes

  • Developing Solutions


Adopting and Adapting of Best Practices

A best practice is typically a documented approach used by the most respected, competitive, and profitable organizations. When implemented appropriately, it should enhance performance and efficiency in a specific area.

"Best practice" is a relative term. To some, it may denote a routine or standard practice, while to others, it may be considered best because existing practices or methods are ineffective in achieving desired results. Best practices often spread throughout an industry after demonstrating success.


Best practices fall into two categories:

  • Managing the Maintenance Process: Concerned with managerial aspects.

  • Executing the Work: Provides practical guidance on technical issues.

We assist our clients in implementing these best practices by focusing on "What should be done" and then on "How it should be done."


Benefits of Best Practices:

  • Increase output with the same set of assets

  • Reduce the need for capital replacements

  • Decrease maintenance cost per unit

  • Lower total cost per unit of output

  • Enhance performance in terms of cost, productivity, and safety

  • Boost competitiveness and market share
