I want to physically represent a dependency graph in the office. The dependency graph has about 30-60 nodes. This dependency graph is a directed acyclic graph (DAG) a.k.a. a tree structure. I'd like to make is physical in some way. It would be nice if the physical visualization has easy editing properties e.g. moving/changing dependencies. But this is not a strict requirement.

Some ideas:

  • simple stickies of e.g. 10x5 cm, with colored tape between
  • knex to construct the tree, attachable stickies
  • printing out a large graph using the in-office A0 printer

Ideally, I'm looking for something making the graph clear and also allowing for some change.

    Traditionally, this is done with cork board, index cards, push pins, and mouline thread (classic example). – Nick Alexeev Feb 11 at 16:54
