We are using Quality Center at present to log and manage our defects. I export from QC a tabular report that lists which defects are related to each other, for example, defect 1 may have 15 other defects associated with it that need to be resolved before defect 1 can be resolved.

I`m looking to see if anyone has devised a macro or know of any software that can take this info and produce in a graphical format the defect dependancies for management reporting. It could be as simple as 1 box per defect that link all other dependant defects.
