I use the sitecustomize module method described here to import some customized packages which don't located on the python's search pathes.

The issue is: when I do some revisions on the then I must restart wingide so that the wingide can find the changes. I want to know whether can I update packages path in real-time without restart wingide?

Wing is not reanalyzing the effective Python Path because it doesn't know this change was made. One idea is to make a change to the Python Path in Wing's Project Properties to trigger a re-inspection of the effective Python Path, but it might be easier to just restart Wing. You can do that smoothly with the command restart-wing (bind it to a key or add a toolbar item). We'll see if this can be improved.
