The following statements depict how to create an appropriately randomized generalized cyclic incomplete block design for v treatments (given by the value of t
) in b blocks (given by the value of b
) of size k (with values of p
indexing the cells within a block) with initial block and increment number i.



For example, the specification
proc plan seed=37430; factors b=10 p=4; treatments t=4 of 30 cyclic (1 3 4 26) 2; run;
generates the generalized cyclic incomplete block design given in Example 1 of Jarrett and Hall (1978), which is given by the rows and columns of the plan associated with the treatment factor t
in Output 86.5.1.
