In case anyone missed this... this is a great outline method to write a Sci-fi setting's source book.
In the illustration, the parts in red is one of the focus in storytelling. It isn't exactly a lot of work, you can summarize elements into paragraphs and a list of key concept in analysis, economics, organization, and management since these are mostly processes and logistics.
it can be a lot of reading, you have to have a basis. Logistics professions, at least ones where the practitioner studies on precedent and the academic elements (to understand why things are the way they are and have the skill to break these elements down in order to fix process problems).
BUT some logistics processes are intuitive, you don't need management certification to do your job if you can do it, although you need time and reflection to put it into words and break down the ideas to be modular and flexible for adaptive problem solving and abstraction.
