    Ergonomics design is a vital and complex work. In view of the complexity, multi-factors coupling and fuzziness of Ergonomics knowledge, an Ergonomics knowledge management model unifying modeling and classifying expression has been presented in this paper. A database of physical ergonomics parameters and a knowledge-base of Ergonomics related to product design have been integrated and founded by use of ACCESS based on the model presented. And a Computer Aided Ergonomics Knowledge Management System (CAEKMS) aiming at design has been implemented by use of VC++. By integrating the CAEKMS into universal design software (Pro/Engineer,UG.), it is convenient to query physical ergonomics parameters and manage Ergonomics knowledge during product design, which will improve the product design efficiency evidently.

    In this paper is presented a feed forward neural networks application in ergonomics. The neural network is used to quantify from the ergonomics point of view, a working place. Based on the combination of six input measurable parameters, the working place is characterized with one from the following three categories: “good”, “medium” or “poor”. The six input parameters that are taken into account by our application are: temperature, humidity, noise, luminosity, weight and frequency. The Java application crates the feed forward neural network, trains it using a set of training patterns and then tests it using real data. The experiment and the Java application were made at University of Pitesti.
