You can launch the Vivado Design Suite and run the tools using different methods depending on your preference. For example, you can choose a Tcl script-based compilation style method in which you manage sources and the design process yourself, also known as Non-Project Mode. Alternatively, you can use a project-based method to automatically manage your design process and design data using projects and project states, also known as Project Mode. Either of these methods can be run using a Tcl scripted batch mode or run interactively in the Vivado IDE. For more information on the different design flow modes, see this link in the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Design Flows Overview (UG892).
