I guess you mean the "simp" family of proof methods, or rather "The
Simplifier" behind it. The  isar-ref manual, section 9.3 has many explanations
about it, but you probably need some practical experience with it to see the

It might also help to study the sources:

(You can read Isabelle/Pure sources in the Prover IDE by opening the central
ROOT.ML, which is also in the Documentation panel.)

Various people on this list can probably provide more concrete answers:
high-end users routinely tinker with the Simplifier setup.
