2.3.4.2. Using a Copy of the Top-Level Project

If designers do not have access to a source control system, the project lead can provide each designer with a copy of the top-level project framework to use as they develop their partitions. In both cases, each designer exports their completed design as a partition, and then the project lead integrates the partition into the top-level design. The project lead can choose to use only the post-synthesis netlist and rerun placement and routing, or to use the post-fitting results to preserve the placement and routing results from the other designer's projects. Using post-synthesis partitions gives the Fitter the most flexibility and is likely to achieve a good result for all partitions, but if one partition has difficultly meeting timing, the designer can choose to preserve their successful fitting results.
