Abstract: A challenge faced by many instructors of systems analysis and design courses is the selection or development of projects that provide challenging, yet suitable, learning experiences for the students. Employing a system development project case in undergraduate MIS courses offers students a multitude of opportunities to experientially examine real-world problems that require real-world solutions. This case provides a proposed experiential learning opportunity for students enrolled in the Systems Analysis & Design course. The learning objectives, project specifications and system requirements are presented, all of which provide students with the information necessary to complete each of the phases of a systems analysis and design methodology. Teaching Notes that offer reference materials for instructors are also provided.

Keywords: Systems analysis & design
