What is the difference between an asset and a capability?
An asset is the equipment / tool / machine / infrastructure that the owner is ready to share. In some cases the owner is ready to share his asset only, in other cases the owner offers to share his operator or engineering as well. In the latter case we call it a capability.
A capability is the unique combination of the following: a sector, a technology, an asset, an operator, an engineering support or know-how, dimensional limitations, quality requirements, a location and an availability allowing to match to a production need. The digital platform is the interface connecting the capacity to the need.
