\begin{document}
We consider several notions of genericity appearing in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. Special emphasis is put on various stability notions which are defined in a combinatorial manner and for which a number of equivalent algebraic characterisations are provided. It is shown that in characteristic zero the corresponding generic positions can be obtained with a simple deterministic algorithm. In positive characteristic, only adapted stable positions are reachable except for quasi-stability which is obtainable in any characteristic.
