The enterprise guide IOT innovation is the important path for the enterprise innovation and development mode change. First of all, based on the use of the Internet of things in the supply chain innovation stage, the synergy degree and degree of freedom in the process of the three dimensions, establish IOT game payoff matrix and the implementation strategy proportion of replicated dynamic equation. Then we simulate IOT customer participation in innovative ways. Research has shown that IOT innovative customers recently, with the enterprise’s desire to maintain collaborative innovation relations becoming more intense; Companies to provide a free and high degree of open innovation platform, the customer may appear rejection; Customers are choosing IOT innovation low degree of freedom of the participation way, but eventually tend to choose high degree of freedom of the participation way; The more platform for customers, the customers involved in earlier Internet innovation platform.
