Definition

Part of the NATO Service-Oriented View.

From p 407, 5.2.5.7 of APPENDIX 5:

A type of delivered functionality, specified independently of the capabilities that provide it.

Note: A service may or may not have a physical effect on its environment.

OASIS Definition: A service is a mechanism to enable access to a set of one or more capabilities, where the access is provided using a prescribed interface and is exercised consistent with constraints and policies as specified by the service description.

Covered by NATO release conditions.

Comments

Definition doesn’t look to be correct - capabilities do not not provide services but a capability configuration might contribute to the provision of one or more services.
