The project developed a smart contract using Solidity that includes a commission structure for campaign managers and the ability to reward managers with non-fungible tokens (NFTs) as an incentive for successful campaigns. The study conducted several tests to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the smart contract, which showed a higher success rate for crowdfunding campaigns. The results demonstrate the potential of using blockchain and Solidity for crowdfunding platforms, providing a secure, efficient, and transparent way for individuals and organizations to raise funds for their projects. With further development and refinement, this platform has the potential to become a popular choice for crowdfunding campaigns.</em></p> Keerthana S Renukananda T D Rashmi M R Yashwanth Yadav P S Suhas K C Kumar Swaroop N C Copyright (c) 2023 NOLEGEIN-Journal of Operations Research & Management 2023-08-12 2023-08-12 6 2 1 8 Problems faced by Indian drivers. <p><em>Making a living as a driver is not easy. Like any other profession, truck driving has its own challenges. Although some problems cannot be controlled, drivers need to be careful while operating, be aware of the dangers, and learn how to deal with them. This study investigates two important aspects of drivers' lives: their work, their health and financial situation, and corruption in the transport sector. Save LIFE Foundation (SLF) is an independent non-governmental organization dedicated to improving safety and aims to understand Indian drivers' knowledge, attitudes, behaviors and practices (KABP) regarding their work, friends and transport in India. The Urgent Care Center has entered into a partnership with a multinational automobile manufacturing company based in Mumbai. A nationwide study was conducted to understand these factors related to drivers' quality of life and occupational hazards. Trucks provide valuable services to customers and companies worldwide. However, while it may appear appealing to newcomers or amateurs, living on the road is not simple. This article discusses some of the most common difficulties that drivers encounter and provides some useful recommendations to help them stay safe while delivering critical commodities and supplies. </em>Truck drivers are the logistics industry's backbone.</p> Ganesh Radhakrishnan Copyright (c) 2023 NOLEGEIN-Journal of Operations Research & Management 2023-12-18 2023-12-18 6 2 34 38 A Review and Exploration of Training and Development Repercussions for the Enrichment of Employee Performance <p><em>This study paper's objective is to provide a thorough analysis of how training and development could enhance employee performance.
