RQM - Owner vs Team area

How does an RQM owner differ from a Team area assignment for an artifact ?  Will the permissions assigned be different ?

Team areas are used to manage team membership, roles assignments, and team artifacts.  They inherit/customize/override the process and timeline of their parent (project area or parent team area).  When assigning a team area to a test artifact, you are assigning a specific process and timeline to that test artifact.

Thanks Paul. While I understood the concept of team area I wanted to know the significance of the owner field in the artifact.

Can I assign an owner who does not belong to the team area to which the artifact is assigned ?  Is the owner drop down only used when assigning the artifact for review/approval ?

The owner field is mutually exclusive to the team area field.  As such, you can assign any user in the repository as the owner, even users that don't belong to the assigned team area.  The associated team area defines the governing process of the artifact whereas the owner field is a static field with no functional bearing on the artifact.
