If the longest chain in a partial order is of length n, then the partial order can be written as a Partition of n antichains.

CHAIN : Let (A ,⋨) be a Poset .A subset of A is called Chain if every two elements in the subset are related.
ANTICHAIN: A subset of A is called Antichain if no two distinct elements in the subset are related.
THEOREM: Let (A ,⋨) be a Poset.Suppose the length of the longest chains in A is n.Then the elements in A can be partitioned into n disjoint Antichains.
