This article presents a method of management of the initial spare parts supply. This generic problem is of particular interest in certain systems in which the difficulty of accessibility or the life cycle duration constitute risks tied to the possible depletion of the spare parts stock. In this paper we consider the spatial context. After having commented on the particularities of the management of the spare parts supply of a space station, we propose a method based on the minimization of the risk of postponement of a maintenance operation. Finally, an application to the Columbus laboratory of the International Space Station is presented.
