DevOps Is Not Just Automation!

I was in the first week of a new job and the assignment was to install a company software on the local machine. In the beginning, I found that there are some documents on the internal website which I could follow to install. This was a very optimistic expectation of course. As soon as I started reading and doing the steps, I realized that there are many things that are not mentioned in the document and I began to ask a lot of questions that I do not have any answers to. I had to ask the current DevOps engineers for each unclear part. Later, I found that every day I am on a call for hours with these engineers and we achieve bit by bit of this installation together. I would say 20% of the operations were documented and automated, but the rest of the things should be done manually. Finally, I managed to install the software in a week but still, there were many things I did not know how I had done, and forgot many other details that were not in the document.
