Heuristics

Time spent in feasibility heuristics
 Type: double
 Default value: 0.05
 Minimum value: 0
 Maximum value: 1

Determines the amount of time spent in MIP heuristics. You can think of the value as the desired fraction of total MIP runtime devoted to heuristics (so by default, we aim to spend 5% of runtime on heuristics). Larger values produce more and better feasible solutions, at a cost of slower progress in the best bound.

Note: Only affects mixed integer programming (MIP) models
