Usage of FIFO

FIFO is an abbreviation that stands for "First In, First Out". It is a method of accounting or inventory management that refers to the way items are handled or processed. When items are processed under the FIFO method, the first items received are the first items to be sold or used, and the most recent items are held back until all previous items have been processed. This system ensures that older items are used or sold first, reducing the risk of spoilage or obsolescence.
