Efficient intelligent control system helps enterprises to create greater economic value and social value, so the rationalization of information structure plays a decisive role in operators’ cognition and operational efficiency. Based on the information characterization method, this paper presents a model of applying the order degree algorithm to the intelligent control system and applies it to the MES production line control system of an enterprise. It not only quantifies the advantages and disadvantages of the information structure by the order degree algorithm, but also provides the direction for the design of the information structure at the beginning of the design process from the microscopic perspective.
