Finding an optimal solution for certain optimisation problems can be an incredibly difficult task, often practically impossible. This is because when a problem gets sufficiently large we need to search through an enormous number of possible solutions to find the optimal one. Even with modern computing power there are still often too many possible solutions to consider. In this case because we can't realistically expect to find the optimal one within a sensible length of time, we have to settle for something that's close enough.
