I've been playing for a while, and I find myself with a lot of time to think about how I want to set up my alts and bla bla bla.

Now, I run 4 accounts. Each has a specific use.
26m My main is kind of a jack of trades, with maxed logi skills (minus 2 races at V),
19m My first Alt is amarr sub BS combat based.
12m My second Alt is Amarr BS based.
11m My third alt... is derpy based (Invention, Manufacturing, Level 4 across the board scanning skills)

Now, what I'm wondering, is about ways that I could train these characters (and the other 2 character slots on each account) / buy characters, that can provide income whilst being offline, given a lot of research.

Currently, I have the following skills as basic necessity to make ISKies whilst sitting around waiting to come home:

(I am keeping in mind, I will be doing a lot of maintenance on each character on a daily basis, and they likely will be in different security areas.)

•Planet Management
- Command Center Upgrades IV
- Interplanetary Consolidation IV
- Remote Sensing III

•Research and Development
- Science V
- Research V
- Metallurgy V
- Scientific Networking III (not sure if I should aim for V on this one)
- Laboratory Operation V
- Advanced Laboratory Operation IV
- Informorph Psychology III (IV if below is relevant)
- Research Project Management (not sure if worth the effort of training) (Haven't looked up much on this particular use / info is usually vague about the agents)

- Industry V
- Production Efficiency V
- Mass Production V
- Advanced Mass Production IV
- Supply Chain Management III (not sure if should get to V)

- Racial Industrial V (prolly Amarr, cuz Amarr are bosses)
- Transport Ships IV
- Evasive Maneuvering V
- Some characters will fly freighters, but those who will, already can :)

Looking for skills I may have missed. Looking for skills I may add to further my long term investments. Already have trade skills like a boss. Thinking about social skills because I'd rather not have to derp around the game mechanics to get high sec PoS's.

Must... resist... urge to continually type paragraphs.

You're not being very clear as to what kind of help you're looking for...

I can assist you in one area though: Research project management.

This skill is used for R&D agents. You can have 1 of these producing datacores (Used in Tech 2 research) as default and then you can hire an additional agent for every level of research project management. The datacores range in prices from 60k -> 250k or some such and is a decent enough passive income source.
