Products can be described as’ a collection of assets with similar attributes.

An asset is something you buy or your own production. Likewise no products which you always have, you may or may not have a definite asset. Either use your own or by someone else, it’s just that the main characteristics of an asset is that you perform and maintain its tracking individually.
And optionally an asset can be sold. In short, the asset can be described as an individual entity of a product.
