This paper presents a new methodology for creating good approximations to Optimal Latin Hypercube designs without using formal optimization. Using this methodology, the approximations to Optimal Latin Hypercube designs are obtained with minimal computational effort and in real time. The methodology exploits patterns of point locations for Optimal Latin Hypercube designs. Small building blocks with one or several points in each are used to recreate these patterns taking into account the dimensionality of the problem and the required number of design points.
