In Project Mode, a directory structure is created on disk to help you manage design sources, run results and reports, and track project status.

The automated management of the design data, process, and status requires a project infrastructure that is stored in the Vivado project file (.xpr).

In Project Mode, the Vivado tools automatically write checkpoint files into the local project directory at key points in the design flow.

To run implementation in Project Mode, you click the Run Implementation button in the IDE or use the launch_runs Tcl command. See this link in the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Design Flows Overview (UG892) for more information about using projects in the Vivado Design Suite.
