Abstract: Engineering graduates are expected to design solutions to solve real world problems. While experts have body of knowledge and heuristics to arrive at solutions, novices do not have such knowledge and hence find it difficult to design solutions. In order to determine the nature of difficulties faced by novices, we conducted a study where novices were required to come up with a conceptual design for a given software design problem. We used the Function-Structure-Behaviour (FSB) lens to analyze the artefacts and the processes. Results from the analysis show that novices were unsuccessful when they fixate to either one or all FSB elements initially. These results inform the pedagogical strategies for teaching learning of conceptual design in the context of software.
