Motivation: Oligo arrays are important experimental tools for the high throughput measurement of gene expression levels. During production of oligo arrays, it is important to identify any faulty manufacturing step. Results: We describe a practical algorithm for the construction of optimal quality control designs that identify any faulty manufacturing step. The algorithm uses hillclimbing, a search technique from combinatorial optimization. We also present the results of using this algorithm on all practical quality control design sizes.
