Document Table of Contents With a Single Quartus® Prime Project

In a team-based environment, part of your design may be incomplete because it is being developed elsewhere. The project lead or system architect can create empty placeholders in the top-level design for partitions that are not yet complete. Designers or IP providers can create and verify HDL code separately, and then the project lead later integrates the code into the single top-level Quartus® Prime project. In this scenario, you can add the completed partitions to the design incrementally, however, the design flow allows all design optimization to occur in the top-level design for easiest design integration. Altera recommends using a single Quartus® Prime project whenever possible because using multiple projects can add significant up-front and debugging time to the development cycle.
