1 Use of advanced tools for multilocalized design INESCOPFootwear Technological InstituteUse of advanced tools for multilocalized designand manufacturing in the footwear industryDr. Enrique MontielIndustry of Design-Based Products: Creating Value through Customization
2 What is INESCOP? Independent service organisation. Founded in 1971. INESCOP is a non profit-making organisation created in It is a service organisation developing scientific and technical activities addressing the needs of the footwear industries that cannot normally be solved individually by the companies due to their small size. Their staff of 147 professionals (13 PhD) includes experts in chemistry, physics, computer science, electronics, ICT, design and robotics.Independent service organisation.Founded in 1971.Non-profit making institution.More than 500 associated companies.
3 Technology CentreINESCOP works as a Technology Centre that supports footwear industries to develop scientific and technical activities that cannot be undertaken by themselves.INESCOP owns 20 patents on different systems, most of them transferred to the industry for exploitation. INESCOP has participated in over 90 EU projects since 1986.
4 INESCOP’s services Testing services, quality control. Technology development.Applied research.Industrial and fashion design.Environment.Training.Information.…because we are an industry driven Research Center -> Research to innovate

6 246 Billion Euros The world footwear sector Value of the world footwear market:246 Billion Euros11All data obtained from World Footwear Yearbook 2011
7 20 Billion Pairs The world footwear sector In 2010 for the first time everWorld footwear production exceeded:20 Billion Pairs
8 The world footwear sector Manufacture is heavily concentrated in Asia:they produce 87% of all the pairs of shoes produced worldwideEuropean Countries produce only 4% of world footwear pairs
9 The European footwear sector 20% of world shoe consumptiondestination of 45% of world importsEurope:And the problem is not only producing less shoes for selling and exporting, there is also a problem with the increase of European imports of outside-EU shoesEurope exports only 11% of world total footwear
10 23% 9 European countries The European footwear sector are in the top15 world footwear exportersSpainItalyPortugal23%Share of allfootwearexportedin the world
11 The Spanish footwear sector The Valencian Region is the hub of the Spanish footwear industry, although it is also present in areas such as Castilla La Mancha and La Rioja.Shoe images of Shoe Street Art exhibition
12 Footwear average value The Spanish footwear sectorIn 2011, Spain exported to China footwear with an average value of 46.43€Footwear average valueShoe images of Shoe Street Art exhibitionExported40.2€Imported5.9€
13 The Spanish footwear sector The Spanish industry has been able to increase its exports to the most important European markets, but lost some share in USA.Increase exports to European markets, with the EXCPETION of Great Brtiain
14 The Spanish footwear sector Imports grew rapidly, both from China and from European markets such as Italy and France.
15 The Spanish footwear sector Footwear exports concentrate in leather shoes, while imports concentrate in cheap rubber & plastic ones.
16 Short life cycle + low price The product problemLife-cycle10 y.0.5 y.Price80€12,000€Short life cycle + low price( + extremely short series: customisation)
17 Typical design, manufacture and commercialisation cycle The time-to-market problemTypical design, manufacture and commercialisation cycle…but there are other cycles
18 One season/year design, manufacture and commercialisation cycle The time-to-market problemOne season/year design, manufacture and commercialisation cyclee.g. Kelme (sports footwear)
19 Continuous design, manufacture and commercialisation cycle The time-to-market problemContinuous design, manufacture and commercialisation cyclee.g. Tempe (Zara)

21 at the manufacturing stage Possible solutionsFlexibilitySpeedAccuracyIntegration:Marketing support:at the design stageat the manufacturing stage-flexibility, speed and accuracy: cad/cam, with knowledge based applications and integration of files and tools-seamless communication between design team, prototyping team, production team, using integrated model of design and production tools.-new media: RA y RVseamless communication of teamsnew means
22 Proven experienceWe are developers of CAD/CAM software solutions, under an integrated scope: all software are interconnectable, and even they’re connected to our hardware solutios
23 Case 1: KelmeProblem: to develop a high performance FUTSAL shoe, in collaboration with Michelin, reducing the development/manufacturing time.
24 Case 1: Kelme Solution: to integrate new biomechanical paradigms, All shoe images in this presentation are Virtual Models
25 Case 1: KelmeSolution: to integrate new biomechanical paradigms, new materials
26 Case 1: KelmeSolution: to integrate new biomechanical paradigms, new materials and new sole design in a digital model,
27 Case 1: KelmeSolution: to integrate new biomechanical paradigms, new materials and new sole design in a digital model, using an integrated knowledge-based CAD/CAM solution.
28 Case 2: Sacha LondonProblem: to add value to the point-of-sale, and to increase mass media impact of the brand.
