We are doing a good job of teaching IS technology and project management but are omitting implementation planning. We need to teach our users and professionals how to answer the following critical questions for our mission-critical transaction processing applications (TPS). * Why does it cost so much? * How long does it take - Why does it take so long? * What makes our applications systems so complex? This presentation discusses pedagogical and presentation structures that will focus more attention on these planning-oriented questions.

Keywords: enterprise systems, transaction processing systems, physical systems design, justifying information systems, estimating information systems
