The same thing works with expensive/complex test equipment instead of
an expert.

You drag out the lab scope, logic analyzer, spectrum analyzer, sweep
generator, strip plotter, and the machine that goes "ping".  You start
to get everything set up to nail that problem securely to the
dissecting board.  Long before you actually get to that point, the
problem becomes intimidated and reveals itself and a solution.
