The Methodology Summary section of the Timing Summary report includes a table of methodology violations. The total number of violations is reported on the right hand side of the Methodology Summary. An icon in front of the category name indicates that an Error or Critical Warning needs to be reviewed. A red icon indicates that the highest severity is an Error, and an orange icon indicates when it is a Critical Warning. There is no icon for Warning or Advisory violations.

Note: Report Timing Summary does not run Report Methodology. It only reports a summary of violations tracked from the latest run of report_methodology (inside the design in-memory or through reloading the checkpoint). To generate a detailed list of methodology violations as a standalone report, do one of the following:
  • Select Reports > Report Methodology from the menu.
  • Run the Tcl report_methodology command.

If report_methodology has not been run prior to running Report Timing Summary, a message is shown explaining that no report is available, as shown in the following figure.
