Abstract: This paper proposes the use of neural networks to help with the solution to a problem demanded by the productive sector in the manufacture of work cabinets compatible with the characteristics of a group of individuals that characterize a good sampling of the studied population. The study is intended to serve as a basis for further work aimed for good ergonomics in meeting the basic conditions necessary for the comfort and welfare of the operators of these jobs. In this investigation we used Kohonen neural networks to sort the data related to the height of the seat-eye level and length of the seat forearm-hand. The results showed that the use of this tool is effective and allows its application in studies using more anthropometric variables making possible to explore further needs.
