Currently, the domestic mould industry is experiencing tremendous difficulty in promoting informatization due to a lack of confidence in the effect of informatization and the related shortage of manpower and funding. For instance, they have difficulty in selecting the type of information system they should introduce in the future. In this study, we develop a model for evaluating informatization level of the mould companies and the evaluation framework from the information viewpoint and derive three evaluation fields and their respective factors as well as a questionnaire for each factor to conduct a survey of domestic mould companies. After the reliability and validity of the survey were analyzed, we finalize the evaluation framework.
