The purpose of this paper is to establish a new evaluation system to assess the degree of integration between industry and the internet. And use the gray correlation matrix method to evaluate the “internet + industry” integration degree of China’s provinces.
This paper establishes a new evaluation system to assess the degree of integration between industry and the internet using the matrix gray relational analysis method.
The main indexes and its rankings of the provinces’ integration degree and the rankings of the provinces’ integration degree are obtained.
The ranking of the degree of integration of various provinces in the country has certain guiding significance in promoting the development of “internet +” and “industry 4.0.”
Establishing a new model for the quantitative assessment of the degree of fusion, this method has a positive impact on the quantitative assessment of “internet + industrial” integration.
