In 2016.1, some checks were moved from
report_drc into the new
report_methodology command. These checks include constraints and
other rules that verify the design, such as logic mapping. The checks comply with the
Design Methodology and run a simplified rule check
as shown in the Report Methodology dialog box.

report_methodology the first time a design
is synthesized and after a change in constraints, clocking topologies, or large logic
changes to identify common design issues. For more information about running methodology
checks, see this link in the
Vivado Design Suite User Guide:
System-Level Design Entry (UG895).
