The AMEISE (A Media Education Initiative for Software Engineering) approach focuses on the simulation of software project management processes. Based on Stuttgart University's SESAM (Software Engineering Simulation by Animated Models) , the AMEISE tool-set allows for repeatedly experiencing the complexity of software project management within a game-like simulation environment [2, 3, 4]. The tutorial participants have the opportunity to run an AMEISE simulation using the socalled quality assurance (QA) simulation model. Based on the description of the required project (simulation goals, available resources), the participants act as a technical project manager who determines the simulated development process by adequate staffing and allocating software development as well as quality assurance tasks.
