Harmonics are how you figure other notes are in tune with your absolute note - they're related to how the frequencies interfere. But that only tells you how to tune one note relative to another. It doesn't help you get a bunch of instruments in tune with one another, even if they're in different locations, etc.

Perhaps if you explained your confusion more, it could be answered better.
