Blocked/Depends-on and Parent/Child links

jim herron (814427) | asked Sep 15 '08, 12:02 p.m.
Are Blocked/Depends-on and Parent/Child links acted on by process? Or are they just visual clues that developers must inspect in the links section of the Work Item?

Blocks/Depends On links are limited to tracking that relation as a link. Parent/Child links are used by plans and stories to show compute progress and in the case of plans provide a visual representation of how work items are broken down into smaller ones.

I wrote up a solution that makes more use of the blocks/depends-on links to determine if a work item is "workable". Take a look if you're interested: A Solution for Tracking and Monitoring Multi-Stream Processes Using Rational Team Concert.
