  • A Machine Learning Based Domestic Violence Prediction and Android Application Based Domestic Violence Prevention Assistance System   Order a copy of this article
    by Sheikh Rasel, Mahfuzul H. Chowdhury 
    Abstract: Domestic violence is a widespread issue in today's society. Numerous efforts are currently being made to reduce domestic violence. Due to the number of repeated offenses and the various pattern of behaviour, this is a difficult problem to control. Existing works did not investigate both emergency and non-emergency help for users of domestic violence help using Android applications as well as machine learning-based violence prediction. This paper prepares the dataset through survey questions and compares the performance of various machine learning-based algorithms for violence prediction. This paper develops a mobile application to provide instant and legal help to victims of domestic violence. This paper offers call button features that make automatic calling, an instant location tracking system, and automatic location along with video/image transfer to the nearest police station, phone shaking features for emergency help. The evaluation shows the usefulness of this application.
    Keywords: domestic violence; machine learning; prediction; legal help; instant help; Android application.

  • A Note on an EOQ Inventory Model with Varying Time-Proportional Deterioration, Time-Dependent Demand and Shortages under the Conditions of Permissible Delay in Payment   Order a copy of this article
    by Prachi Swain, Trailokyanath Singh 
    Abstract: The objective of the proposed research is to investigate the effect of trade credit policy with shortages within the EOQ (Economic Order Quantity) framework. The inventory model for a deteriorating item is developed with the following characteristics: 1) delay in payments is permitted; 2) demand is deterministic, time-dependent and quadratic function of time; 3) deteriorating items follow a time-proportional deterioration rate; 4) the grace period is known and fixed. 5) shortages are permitted to occur and are completely backlogged. For settling the account, the formulation of the model is derived under two main circumstances: Case 1 - the grace period is less than the shortages period and Case 2 - the grace period is greater than the shortages period of the system. A couple of numerical examples and sensitivity analysis of the optimal cost with respect to different parameters of the model has been carried out.
    Keywords: Deteriorating items; EOQ; Permissible delay in payments; Shortages; Time-dependent quadratic demand; Time-proportional deterioration rate.

  • Factors Affecting Occupational Safety Performance in Vietnamese Construction Enterprises   Order a copy of this article
    by Nguyen Ngoc Long, Le Thi-Thanh-Truc, Bui Huy-Khoi 
    Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the factors affecting occupational safety performance in Vietnams construction industry. The survey sample for the study consisted of Vietnamese managers and construction workers, and 255 suitable survey samples were selected from this group. The linear structural model is used to evaluate the data and assess the study hypotheses. The studys findings demonstrated that safety leadership practices and organisational identity had a substantial influence on the safety performance components, including personal protective equipment and safety participation. Psychological empowerment has a significant effect on employees desire to take part in safety activities. The construction business in Vietnam, which has the greatest rate of occupational accidents of any profession, is the subject of this study, which is the first of its kind in that nation.
    Keywords: Safety performance; Construction worker safety; Organisational identity; Safety participation; personal protective equipment.

  • Quantifying the Relationship Between E-Advertising Capabilities and Marketing Mix Cost Savings   Order a copy of this article
    by Vikramjit Singh, Jaskirat Singh 
    Abstract: With the rapid rise of digital marketing, e-advertising has emerged as an increasingly important channel for businesses. However, academic inquiry into e-advertising’s holistic impact across all marketing mix elements is limited. Most studies focus exclusively on isolated aspects of e-advertising, resulting in a significant literature gap regarding its integrated benefits. This research addresses this void by investigating the relationship between e-advertising innovation/cost-effectiveness and the four Ps of marketing product, pricing, place and promotion. The study employs a quantitative, cross-sectional survey methodology to collect data from 605 online and mobile consumers in India. Structural equation modelling analysis reveals that e-advertising innovation and cost-effectiveness have significant positive associations with the product, pricing and promotion components of the marketing mix. However, the relationship with place is non-significant. These results provide empirical evidence that e-advertising can enhance cost efficiencies associated with developing products, optimising pricing approaches and implementing promotional campaigns. However, e-advertising may not substitute for traditional distribution and location considerations. The findings make key theoretical contributions by responding to calls for holistic e-advertising assessment across the marketing mix. The results offer vital data for practice to inform resource allocation and strategic integration of e-advertising across marketing functions.
    Keywords: e-advertising; marketing; SEM; cost-effectiveness; innovation.

  • An integrated ANP and Dempster Shafer's Theory (DST) model for Distribution Channel Selection Strategy   Order a copy of this article
    by Antima Sikder, Sujan Mondal, ANKITA RAY 
    Abstract: The purpose of this research is to investigate the distribution channel strategies adopted by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the remanufacturing industry. The aim is to identify the best distribution channel alternative for OEMs based on various selection factors. The authors utilized the Analytic Network Process-based Dempster Shafer's model as the main methodology for selecting the most suitable distribution channel for OEMs in remanufacturing. The approach involves analyzing and evaluating eight distribution channel alternatives and considering multiple channel selection factors. The research findings demonstrated the effectiveness of the selected approach in identifying the optimal distribution channel for OEMs in the remanufacturing industry. The results also highlighted the robustness of the experimental findings. The utilization of the Analytic Network Process-based Dempster Shafer's model adds originality to the research. The identified optimal distribution channel may help OEMs effectively meet customers' demands and enhance their overall remanufacturing operations.
    Keywords: Distribution channel; Remanufacturing; Analytic Network Process (ANP); Dempster Shafer's Theory (DST).
