Optimization, Land Use, Linear Programming Introduction, Port


Port operational activities, in addition to loading and unloading activities, there are also other business activities, such as land rental business. Land port leased to service users to support loading and unloading activities at the dock. Therefore, the land leasing business is the supporting business that plays a vital role in the operation of the port. Land leased to customers based on zoning designation. There are major zoning to support the needs of dock activities and additional zoning to support other maritime businesses. A suitable zoning area will help operations and increase revenue from land leases. Efficient land use will also reduce the need for reclamation for port development since reclamation is now considered a move that harms the environment's ecosystem. The problem in zoning design for harbor land use is the mismatch of land zoning planning with the needs of land users. A lot of land is empty because it is not suited for the zoning that land users need, thus causing a financial loss for the company. An optimization model is needed to maximize the benefits of land use. This study uses profit as an objective function while regulating and projecting land demand is a constraint. This study has established the optimal land allocation using linear programming to optimize each land zoning to maximize revenue without ignoring existing regulations.
