Part of the NATO System View.
From section 5.6.14, p 442 of APPENDIX 5:
An aspect of a person or organisation that enables them to fulfil a particular function.
Covered by NATO release conditions.
Interestingly from the definition it would seem that an Organisation can have (‘play’) a Role but NAF:Organisation is a non-functional resource - it is not allowed to have functions allocated to it.
- Role is a specialisation of (‘is a’) Functional Resource.
