A supersaturated design (SSD) is an experimental plan, useful for evaluating the main effects of m factors with n experimental units when m > n - 1, each factor has two levels and when the first-order effects of only a few factors are expected to have dominant effects on the response. Use of these plans can be extremely cost-effective when it is necessary to screen hundreds or thousands of factors with a limited amount of resources. In this article we describe how to use cyclic balanced incomplete block designs and regular graph designs to construct E (s(2)) optimal and near optimal SSDs when m is a multiple of n - 1. We also provide a table that can be used to construct these designs for screening thousands of factors. We also explain how to obtain SSDs when m is not a multiple of n - 1. Using the table and the approaches given in this paper, SSDs can be developed for designs with up to 24 runs and up to 12,190 factors.
