How We Do It

We can provide you or your staff with world class training courses in asset management, maintenance management, reliability and more. In addition to our public training courses, we welcome enquiries regarding customising or expanding these to meet your unique training needs.

Consulting and Advisory services:

We can target specific needs of a client, after a exploratory discussion using a multitude of interventions.  Our typical approach is a 3 step process:

1.Understand: The process begins with a thorough assessment of existing maintenance and reliability practices. Approximately one week is spent observing maintenance activities, interviewing employees, conferring with management, reviewing documentation, touring facilities and becoming familiar with the client’s unique situation and environment.

The resulting examination includes observations, findings and discoveries about all practices assessed which impact your maintenance and reliability program’s effectiveness, including plant condition, equipment availability, work management process, materials management practices, reliability practices and asset management system implementation.

Training and Education:

We provide Learning & Development consultants and trainers to help your organization develop effective learning strategies, increase employee skills, train leaders, and manage change. Using proven methods and techniques appropriate for all learning styles, Vilas International expert trainers can deliver standard or custom training programs for the purpose of educating, raising awareness

Audits and Assessments

When starting  a maintenance and reliability improvement journey, it can be difficult to know where to start. It’s very important to understand where you are as an organization – to understand your current reality. Maybe you have already started on your journey, and want to know how you are stacking up to your goals? Let Vilas International help. We offer an outside and structured view of your organization taken through our experienced lens with our audit and assessment services.

Coaching and Mentoring:

In an organization, various employee development programs are undertaken, so as to raise their level of performance. We provide a coaching and mentoring program focused on improving an employees knowledge and expertise in the discipline of Maintenance Engineering and Reliability Management.

While coaching is the process of training and supervising a person to better their performance. On the other hand, mentoring refers to the counseling process carried on to guide and support a person for his career development.

Coaching is an on-the-job management development program, that occurs between an employee and his immediate line manager, or in this case a “coach” for a specific and short-term purpose, to improve their  performance and develop skills. Conversely, Mentoring is a career development initiative taken by the management, in which an experienced person guides and motivates a less experienced one, in gaining competencies for professional development.
