Abstract: A brief description of methods and software for estimation of the ergonomics of biotechnical systems ergonomics is given. The study shows that the used indicators don't give sufficient accuracy for practical purposes because they don't take into account the impact of ergonomics on the functional status, the health of the people status, and the used technical systems owing to the fuzzy and latent (hidden) nature of the links between them. A method of synthesis of hybrid fuzzy decision rules groups is proposed for the analysis of the data structure by specially developed algorithm exploratory analysis based on fuzzy application. Mathematical modelling and software showed that the confidence in the decisions made by the selected class of problems exceeds the level of 0.85. This allows recommending the use of the obtained results in clinical practice.

Keywords: ergonomicity level; technical systems; fuzzy logic; sets of hybrid decision rules; prediction; early diagnostics; occupational diseases; function of belonging; bioactive points; technical system construction.
