The EnterpriseOne toolkit includes tools leveraged by any different types of users, for example: technical users, functional users, system administrators, developers, and project managers. Within your team, you likely have a variety of users accessing and using these tools to support your JD Edwards installed products. You may not personally use each and every tool available to you in the EnterpriseOne toolkit, but this document will provide a good foundational understanding of their use in your organization. Here is a table to give you a quick introduction to the tool, types of user that might use it, a use case of what it may be used for and then a specific example.
