The report_methodology command reports additional constraints and timing analysis issues, which you must carefully review before and after running the place and route tools. This section describes the main XDC and TIMING categories of checks, along with their relative impact on timing closure and hardware stability. You must focus on resolving the checks that impact timing closure first.

See this link in Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Design Analysis and Closure Techniques (UG906) for more information on some of the following checks.

Also, see the Adoption Of The Methodology Report blog series to get an understanding on how report_methodology helps resolves issues and saves you time.

Important: To increase visibility, the summary of the methodology violations is also included in the timing summary text report, because addressing these issues is critical for having proper signoff timing.
