Key Pillars of Hybrid Project Methodology

Shortening the initial analysis/functional specification creation phase.

Designing a high-quality solution architecture based on modular principles.

Agile development through prototyping with a focus on rapid feedback acquisition.

Involving key users directly in the solution preparation process.

Conducting integration testing before the actual application launch.

1. Prepared roadmap. Implementation allows for parallelizing development while simultaneously monitoring the overall project status.
2. Feedback during implementation, with the option for partial correction of requirements.
3. Thanks to intensive user involvement, the risk of poor application reception and issues during the initial deployment is minimized.

Platform Recommendation Methodology

Our evaluation model consists of more than 40 indicators.


Available solutions are evaluated based on over 40 indicators grounded in our extensive practical experience. Each metric is selected through expert knowledge in the fields of planning and IT know-how.


The weight assigned to each metric is determined based on customer needs and priorities. Final weights are established through a combination of Adastry’s expertise and customer requirements.


The final evaluation displays scores for each functional area, and the weighted overall score indicates the most suitable tool based on customer needs.

We have created a prediction and planning application catering to the needs of the largest European automotive players aiming to reduce CO2 emissions

A robust planning application for hundreds of users was developed for prediction and control purposes. It covers all aspects of CO2 production management – planning production volumes and deriving the number of registrations in each country, including time-shifting, recording technical measures to reduce emissions and their impact on total emissions produced, optimizing the plan based on the mix offered and the measures applied.

Finally, individual importers have access to the application and can plan and simulate impacts within their sales countries/regions.

The planning tool is already used by 3 major car companies and is a business critical application for them.
