17. EEWB - Easy Enhancement Workbench: It is a development tool that can be used to enhance
SAP Applications (Business Objects).
Wizards are used in the workbench to define customer enhancements of business objects. This
means that the user without ABAP knowledge can also make enhancements to the standard SAP

created manually. In both cases transportable ABAP object are created and the same customer
exists, business transaction events or BAdIS are implemented.
The only difference is the way that the required objects are created.
In most cases the enhancement applies to all system. E.g.: when you enhance a business object in
CRM, the data exchange to other system (BDoc) is also adjusted.
The system landscape must be configured appropriately for cross-system generation.
