I’m working on an optimization problem using SCIP and I’ve noticed that it takes a very long time to find a primal solution. I don’t need to find optimal solutions and I’d prefer to find feasible solutions early on. I would like to encourage SCIP to try heuristics more often but I’m unsure how to do so.

I’ve looked at the SCIP parameters documentation and it seems like there are many options related to tweaking values for specific heuristics, but it’s unclear to me how they fit together or how they should be set.

Also, is there a global parameter that I can set to generally increase the use of heuristics without specifying a specific method?

Any guidance on how to achieve this or explanation of how SCIP selects its heuristics would be helpful.

Thanks
