Transfer a project from one chip to another

Hello guys, 

I have a very simple question but in essence, it needs complete understanding. 

I wanna know what is the procedure and principles that must care about moving a project (which is designed for a specific Xilinx chip and board) to another chip and board (the same family of chips, for example, UltraScale+ family). I couldn't find any specific paradigm to explain what's the important steps. 

I appreciate any help.

@sahebi.amin 

Your pure HDL (eg. VHDL or Verilog) will be portable to different devices.  Things that may not be portable are:

1) instantiation of things from the device Libraries Guide (eg. UG974

2) instantiations of Xilinx IP

3) many things in the project constraints (.XDC) file  - especially physical constraints

-and, you must ensure that the new device has at least as many used resources (eg. IO, slices, RAM, DSP, GTP tranceivers) as the old device (eg. see UltraScale+ Selection Guide).

Dear markg@prosensing.com , 

Many thanks for your quick reply, 

I didn't care about device libraries, I will try and will back to you.

Thanks
