When is the right time to use the Elite\Elitist mode in a Genetic Algorithm? I have no idea when to use it. What kind problems can be solved using this?

All I know is an elitist model is where you choose the elite (the solution with highest fitness function) and they have a reserve slot for the next generation, and they are the one up for crossover.
