For example, if you receive materials from a vendor at a price that is different from the standard price, the BSV transaction event key is used to record the change in inventory value.  

Here is a simple example of how BSV is used. You create a purchase order for 100 units of a material that is valuated at a standard price. The purchase order price is $10 per unit.  

You receive the materials from the vendor. The actual cost of the materials is $9 per unit. The BSV transaction event key is used to record the change in inventory value. The inventory value is decreased by $100, which is the difference between the purchase order price and the standard price of the materials.
