This paper introduces a case study based on a start-up company called Greener Electronic Bike. This company was set up by two bicycle fans in the year 2006. After the initial setting up of the company, the electronic bicycles were sold successfully to major retailers such as Argos or Halfords. In the last few years they decided to expand the company by setting up an online storefront on the Internet by hiring a consulting company. The case provides the background for students to work on a set of assignments by analysing the many challenges and problems this small company might face as it continues to grow.Teaching notes are provided in the second part of the case study and a sample systems analysis and design (SAD) project specification with solutions is illustrated for lecturers to refer. The analysis phase of the SAD project is then discussed and key issues are raised.
