Abstract: With the increasing complex interaction, the relationship between information industry and building industry shows the characteristics of nonlinear and coupling. This study introduces the Shapley value to analyse the relationship between indexes, which comprehensively reflects the interactions between them. This method can be seen as an extension of the traditional method by using additive measures. Based on the coupling of information industry and construction industry, the model of coupling degree and coordination degree is established. Meantime, a numerical example is given to illustrate the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed model. The coupling and coordination degree model is supposed to provide reference for choosing development path and making industrial strategy for current building industry.

Keywords: information industry; building industry; Shapley value; coupling degree; coordination degree; modelling; construction industry; information systems; information technology.
