To solve the problem that available methods of order degree evaluation ignore the heterogeneous information interactions between subsystems, an improved method of order degree evaluation, based on structural entropy, is proposed from the perspective of heterogeneous interactions between subsystems. A case study is proposed to test our model, and order degree under the two scenarios is contrasted. Result shows that directed information flow increases timeliness of information and decreases accuracy of information, which is repeatedly verified in practice. The proposed model, which is more in line with the actual structure of information system, not only further improves order degree evaluation in theory, but also provides operational method to order degree evaluation in real-world information systems.
