Is there are Matrix out there that explains what you can do with the different licence / versions of Manufacturing Apps.
I see there is a customization guide but that only shows me what I can do not what I'm allowed to do.
Thanks in advance.
You can refer the document named "What’s New in ThingWorx Manufacturing Apps 8.x.x" to get the details of what all new features added to the corresponding version.
Thanks for the reply, but that's not what I'm looking for.
I want to know what license of MFG Apps I must buy if I want to change something in MFG Apps.
What constitutes a customization vs configuration.
You can buy Standard Manufacturing app license.
With the standard license you can make customization's using the ThingWorx Composer as per your requirement.
You can refer the article https://www.ptc.com/en/support/article?n=CS271439 for downloading and installing license.
Make sure that you/your account is entitled for Manufacturing apps, then only you will get features of Manufacturing apps added into you license file.
If you are not entitled for manufacturing apps, please reach out to your sales representative.
As a Partner, you will need to work with your PTC Partner rep for obtaining the licensing needed. This licensing will allow you access to ThingWorx Composer for making customizations to the app.

Generally, customizations are handled at the ThingWorx Composer level and as a Partner you have this level of access.
You will need to discuss the licensing options available for your customers with your Partner Rep. This information can vary depending on client needs, level of expertise, etc., and possibly even version of product.
We have been doing some additional research around your questions.
First, we need to clarify some information previously provided. As a Partner, you should have full access to ThingWorx Composer. However, for your customers, the Standard edition of ThingWorx Manufacturing Apps does not offer full access to Composer. It provides the ability to edit existing mashups but does not allow for the creation of new ones, therefore the ability to customize is limited.
Both the Enterprise and Premium licensing allow full access to Composer for customization and creation of new mashups.
Your Partner Rep is the best resource for questions regarding licensing based on the needs of your customers.
