Research of a conceptual framework of assistance for innovating collective design by the usage: proposal of the tool "Glocal" for the hand tools design ant the work equipment design

Abstract : This research falls under the field of the industrial engineering and positions precisely in logics of innovation upstream. The research of the productivity and quality are visions which were born with after war. But today, competition passed from a regional dimension to world. The company must now be able continuously to enrich its offer by innovating products and new concepts. For a few years, one has observed a tendency of the technological companies of sectors of points to build all or a part of their process of innovation around the set of themes of the usages. The question for FACOM is posed also today; with the appearance of an international competition able to make not only the bottom-of-the-range copy at a very cheap price, but also of the innovative products at very competitive prices, FACOM must be different by proposing in a way systematic and reasoned of the innovations which ensure a durable competing advantage to him; the disparate, not coordinated and opportunist innovation not allowing more to guarantee a perenniality for the company. The studies of usage make it possible in to articulate the bonds between the technique and the society in order to form and to structure of the fields of innovation in the system built by the interaction between these two poles. They allow the new shapes of comprehension of the market and especially, they bring knowledge and a fine comprehension of the customers and users. Thus, to innovate by the usage, the industrialists must be able to generate and control the production of collective reasoning innovating in phase upstream of the processes of innovation. The usage being a multidimensional and multi-field set of themes, the exploration of the space of the practical values must be structured in order to build strategies of design innovating in a context of intensive innovation. Our research registered in making and the experimenting of a conceptual framework making it possible to innovate and control, at the interface between the Research and the Development, a repeated innovation process by usage.
