First-in-First out Method (FIFO) - It is a technique of costs the issues of components, in he purchase in which they are bought. In other terms, the components are released in the transaction in which they appear in the store or the items lengthiest in inventory are released first. Thus each problem of content only rejuvenates the price which does not indicate the present rate. This technique is considered appropriate in times of dropping price because the content price billed to development will be high while the rc of components will be low. But, in the situation of increasing costs, if this technique is implemented, the charge to development will be low as as opposed to rc of components. Consequently, it would be difficult to buy the same number of content (as in the present period) in future without having additional investment sources. The pros and cons of the technique may be mentioned as follows:
1. It is simple to understand and easy to work.
2. Material price billed to development symbolizes actual price with which the price of development should have been billed.
3. In the situation of dropping costs, the use of this technique gives better results.
4. Ending inventory of content will be showed very carefully at present rate.
1. If the costs go up and down frequently, this technique may lead to office mistake.
2. Since each problem of content to development is related to a specific price, the costs billed to the same job are likely to show a difference from interval to interval.
3. In the situation of increasing costs, the real income of the issue being low, they may be insufficient to meet the concern's need to buy raw components at the judgment price.
