From Wikipedia: "A heuristic technique, or a heuristic for short, is any approach to problem solving or self-discovery that employs a practical method that is not guaranteed to be optimal, perfect or rational, but which is nevertheless sufficient for reaching an immediate, short-term goal."

From Merriam-Webster: "involving or serving as an aid to learning, discovery, or problem-solving by experimental and especially trial-and-error methods"
