I use whatever works. It is difficult to say precisely what the method is when it depends on what the problem is.

One thing I do know is that if there is a problem that shows up on one sample of a model of piano and does not appear on another, it is not a design issue. That is a logical conclusion. Logic is one of my tools.

But tolerances vary from piano to piano and are changed over time and drift with time so an intended design at one point is often no longer extant. I employ logic as well, but logic must not be misused to simplify away factors that exist. The foremost tool in logic is Occam's razor.

Occam's Razor says that if someone can do something simply, that someone who needs to do it in a far more complicated way is wrong.

BDB, Occam's razor says that you test the simplest explanation first. There is much art in deriving the simplest explanation. That art can involve much study of seemingly minor details. With musical instruments, the context of use is often the most difficult part to understand all of the possibilities.

Another issue with aliquot scales is that they can have false beats as bad or worse than SL strings. Just the nature of the beast.
