A goal of the Studio course in the Master of Software Engineering
program at Carnegie Mellon University is to bridge the gap between
experience and academics. One way to transfer experience to young
software engineers is through case studies designed to focus students
on specific software engineering problems. This paper discusses my
experience with developing a case study to improve a student's
analytical capabilities and introduce the importance of considering
maintenance and implementation issues in software design. The case
study, developed as a classroom assignment, proved an effective tool
to teach software engineering students that there are more things to
consider than performance specifications.
