You can use the Vivado IDE to analyze designs saved as design checkpoints. You can run a design in Non-Project Mode using Tcl commands (synth_design, opt_design, power_opt_design, place_design, phys_opt_design, and route_design), store the design at any stage, and read it in a Vivado IDE session. You can start with a routed design, analyze timing, adjust placement to address timing problems, and save your work for later, even if the design is not fully routed. The Vivado IDE view banner displays the open design checkpoint name.
