There is ongoing work on conceptual modelling of such business notions as Affordance and Capability. We have found that such business notions as Affordance and Capability are constructively defned using elements and properties of executable behaviour models. In this paper, we clarify the definitions of Affordance and Capability using Coloured Petri Nets and Protocol models.The illustrating case is the process of drug injection. We show that different behaviour modelling techniques provide different precision for definition of Affordance and Capability and clarify the conceptual models of these notions. We generalise that the behaviour models can be used to improve the precision of conceptualization.
