Abstract. This research investigate the optimization of the available parking area, based on parking requirement analysis and the identification of existing parking problem. The study is expected to provide information to reduce traffic delay due to on-street parking. It is related to the need of parking area while offstreet parking area is not available. For a case study, the street of Panglima Polem in Banda Aceh is chosen as it is located in the city central of Banda Aceh. The model use linear programming supported by observation and survey data to formulate optimization problem. The study has formulated a well-posed problem for parking slot optimization based on the user needs, interpreted as parking slot proportional to parking accumulation and duration. Keywords: parking slot optimization, linear programming

1. Introduction
Transportation plays an important and strategic role in the development of a nation, particularly in distributing the product of the development for all citizens. General problems that occur in urban transportation is the traffic jam. One of the sources of the traffic jam is the decreases of road diameter due to the use of the part of the road for on-street parking. This traffic jam has a massive effect if it is considered comprehensively. One of this effects is, for instance, the excessive use of fuels which cause a large amount of economic losses. Hence, the effort to reduce the traffic jam is necessary, one of which is the management of on-street parking problem. The traffic flow problem due to on-street parking is an extremely serious problem. Several researches has been conducted in relation to this particular problem, such as works of Sinaga [10] and Setiawan [8]. The analysis of parking demand based on characteristic of parking sites has been conducted by Yosritzal [11] and Widanengsih [12]. In addition, they also suggested that regression method can also be used to determine the standard of parking slot demand around a hospital.

Cordone [3] dan Silva [9]. From simple observation. .Proceedings of the 6th IMT-GT Conference on Mathematics. Cannon [2] develop a simulation program to handle the parking problem. PCU of each vehicle can be obtained in the Table 2. Panglima Polem.1. The demand of parking slot is impossible to be fullfiled entirely especially if the strategy is to use the on-street parking. For long term desain Djakfar [4] suggested a method using criteria analysis. From a series of previous researches related to the parking problem management. Peunayong area located in Banda Aceh is a center for bussiness activity in the city. Based on its location. On the other hand. i. This on-street parking decreases road capacity and increase road side obstacle. In reality.: on street parking and off street parking (Widanengsih dan Elkhasnet [12]). Literature Review Parking is defined as terminating a vehicle at a certain location and is a part of traffic circulation. as the space is usually allocated for traffic flow. This problem is the result of insufficient parking space available in the area.e. Parking Control Unit (PCU) is the parking space used for a vehicle. 2. model using research operation employing linear programming is also utilized by researchers such as Bruglieri [1]. the problem that usually emerge in relation to on-street parking is to determine the best parking slot allocation to distribute among different types of vehicle on limited parking space. Kuala Lumpur. In this study. we focus on building a mathematical model describing the problem and try to allocate optimal parking slot proportional to each type of vehicle using linear programming. The problem occurred in the road around the area is a heavily massive traffic activity. which depend on vehicle dimension plus additional space needed for a vehicle to maneuvre whose value depending on the parking angle. Statistics and its Applications (ICMSA2010) Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman. Malaysia 463 The parking management problems were also studied using transportation management science as performed by Rapp [6]. such as in the road segment of Jalan T. the parking is classified into two categories. we cannot find a research related to parking slot allocation using linear programming. obvious sources of low road performance in this area is the on-street parking along the road and intersections.
