The design entry in PDM is classified into the following two categories:

Design Creation
Design creation represents a complete manual entry for power estimation. It starts with proper device selection, followed by thermal condition specification and more importantly, configuring the platform management controller. After configuring the design, use the IP wizards to create designs followed by refinement on individual block sheets.
Design Analysis
Design analysis is specific to Versal ACAP designs created in the Vivado® tool and imported into PDM for further analysis or post-processing.
