How to disunite pie chart elements?

I’ve created a Pie Chart Using Illustrator CS6 using Chart tool.

… and the “Group Selection Tool” to pick single pie chart elements and move them around. All pie chart elements are within one layer and grouped together.

Now I want do the movement automatically. In other words, I want to equally “explode” the Pie Chart elements, like shown on the following figure:

How can I achieve this? Doing it manually looks quite messy. Optimally, it is possible using effects, because this would enable an adaption of the pie chart’s data afterwards… Thank you!
