When using Project Mode, various settings are available to control the features of synthesis and implementation. These settings are passed to runs using run strategies, which you set in the Settings dialog box. A run strategy is simply a saved set of run configuration parameters. Xilinx supplies several pre-defined run strategies for running synthesis and implementation, or you can apply custom run settings. In addition, you can use separate constraint sets for synthesis and implementation.
Tip: You can create an out-of-context module run to synthesize the Vivado Design Suite IP in the project. If you generate a design checkpoint for the IP, the default behavior is to create an out-of-context run for each IP in the design.
