Method used for multi-objective solves
Type: int
Default value: -1
Minimum value: -1
Maximum value: 2

When solving a continuous multi-objective model using a hierarchical approach, the model is solved once for each objective. The algorithm used to solve for the highest priority objective is controlled by the Method parameter. This parameter determines the algorithm used to solve for subsequent objectives. As with the Method parameters, values of 0 and 1 use primal and dual simplex, respectively. A value of 2 indicates that warm-start information from previous solves should be discarded, and the model should be solved from scratch (using the algorithm indicated by the Method parameter). The default setting of -1 usually chooses primal simplex.

Note: Only affects continuous multi-objective models
