We present a quantitative assessment of the impact a future Electron-Ion Collider would
have in the determination of parton distribution functions in the proton and parton-to-hadron
fragmentation functions through semi-inclusive deep-inelastic electron-proton scattering data.
Specifically, we estimate the kinematic regions for which the forthcoming data are
expected to have the most significant impact in the precision of these distributions,
computing the respective correlation and sensitivity coefficients. Using a reweighting
technique for the sets of simulated data with their realistic uncertainties for two different
center-of-mass energies, we analyse the resulting new sets of parton distribution functions and
fragmentation functions, which have significantly reduced uncertainties.
