In Table 3, in addition to the LP solution, we report the first MIP solution produced by CPLEX during its branch-and-bound (B&B) exploration, as well the best available MIP solution that the solver could obtain within a specified computational limit of 300 CPU seconds.
In our quest for the first MIP solution and the best MIP solution within 300 CPU seconds, the rounding scheme and the RINS heuristic were triggered by the solver at every node explored in the B&B tree.
1 to output the first MIP solution and the best MIP solution within a timelimit of 300 CPU seconds, the resulting heuristic solutions respectively sacrificed only 2% and 0.
