What are heuristics and schemas?

A Heuristic (computer science) is a less formal solution than an algorithm. For instance, a hack is not a software product. A hack is more like a Workaround; whereas, a software product is designed upon algorithms.

A Schema is more like a Template. Computer science examples would include aDatabase schema or an XML schema.

So, where is the intersection of heuristics and schemas? For instance, a heuristic, or certainly an algorithm, might be likened to the noun map; whereas, a schema is more like the verb map….

This would make an algorithm like putting things out of a form; whereas, a schema would be like putting things into a form. Therefore, a heuristic would be output, and a schema would be input.
