The recommended steps after implementation are:
  1. Review the implementation messages.
  2. Review the implementation reports to validate key aspects of the design:
    • Timing constraints are met (report_timing_summary).
    • Utilization is as expected (report_utilization).
    • Power is as expected (report_power).
  3. Write the bitstream file.

    Writing the bitstream file includes a final DRC to ensure that the design does not violate any hardware rules.

  4. If any design requirements have not been met:
    • In Project Mode, open the implemented design for further analysis.
    • In Non-Project Mode, open a post-implementation design checkpoint.

For more information on analysis of the implemented design, see section Interactive Design Analysis in the IDE in the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Design Analysis and Closure Techniques (UG906).
