Summary: Many problems in combinatorics and related fields reduce to the problem of computing orbits of groups acting on finite sets. One of the techniques is known under the name Snakes and Ladders. We offer the alternate name poset classification algorithm. We will describe this technique and compare the performance on example problems.
