3.8 Value interfaces of partnerships

The railway can alternatively decide to cooperate in a different way with a catering company. In a partnership they offer a joint interface to the customer and the railway company itself has no transactions with the catering company. Rather, the partnership has some operational activities to operate this joint interface. These activities are not a profit center and so are not shown in the value model (figure 3.9).
