The concept definition and measurement of enterprise upgrading is a great concern practically and theoretically. Firstly, the concept of enterprise upgrading is defined in combination with the new development stage and concept. Then an index system is constructed based on the level of efficiency and added value. The entropy method is used to weight the index system. Finally, taking the A-share entity enterprises from 2008 to 2018 as the research sample, we analyzed the development trend of enterprise upgrading level and compared the development status of enterprises from the perspective of property rights heterogeneity, regional differences, and fixed asset scale heterogeneity. The research results provide a reference for the reasonable measurement of enterprise upgrading levels.
