in your own words please explain to me what FIFO means in terms of inventory? Can you give me an example when this would be necessary?
FIFO is a method of stock valuation that stands for 'First-In, First-Out'. This assumes that the first (oldest) units of stock produced or received are also the first ones that are sold.
