A heuristic approach is an informal method of solving a problem. Sometimes this is accomplished through logical reasoning, experimental techniques, or trial-and-error.[1]

Heuristic algorithms and processes are ones which, although they might not come up with the optimal solution, demonstrably result in a fairly good/accurate one.
