As information and technology grow up globally, the business should look for the optimal productivity efficiency and add smart management to maintain the company’s interests and value. In order to achieve the smart productivity, vast businesses pay lots of attention to invest in industrial 4.0 and change their business model. In this research, the sensor collaboration structure will be proposed and established to connect the information base and thing base. Human can make decisions and communicate between the physical domain and the cyber domain. In the physical domain, the sensors can gather the data from the machine, the production line, the factory and the product. By sensor collaboration, the signals and information can transfer quickly and simultaneously in the cyber domain. Through the networking between information base and thing base, decision makers can easily predict, judge and handle the tasks. As a result, information base, thing base and decision makers can become a triangle system to achieve the vertical integration and level contact.
