Document Table of Contents Launching Design Assistant from Timing Analyzer

You can run Design Assistant directly from the Timing Analyzer to assist when optimizing timing paths and other timing conditions. When you launch Design Assistant from the Timing Analyzer, Design Assistant is preset to check only rules that relate to timing analysis.

Follow these steps to run the Design Assistant from the Timing Analyzer:

  1. Compile the design through at least the Compiler's Plan stage.
  2. Open the Timing Analyzer for the Compiler stage from the Compilation Dashboard.
  3. In the Timing Analyzer, click Reports > Design Assistant > Report DRC.... The Report DRC (design rule check) dialog box opens.
  4. Under Rules, disable any rules that are not important to your analysis by removing the check mark.
  5. Consider whether to adjust rule parameter values in the Parameters field.
