FIFO Inventory valuation without Balance Sheet Valuation

Former Member

Our business wants to know if they can have real-time FIFO inventory valuation;

At a give point, When we perform and update the material prices through the Balance sheet Valuation - FIFO procedure; system automatically revaluates the inventory at FIFO with offsetting to an expense account.

However, the requirement is to have FIFO real time without performing any month end tasks/ postings to calculate and update the material prices.

Given that the existing material price controls (S and V); Is the above possible ?

With Material Ledger; some of the standard functionalities can be leveraged i,e to have one valuation for std/ actual and the other to have FIFO valuation but the business thinks this is too much of an effort to maintain this functionality. Since, even for this option - the business has to run month end jobs.

Thanks !

Please have a look at note 1402500, which contains some information concerning FIFO calculation within Material Ledger

Real time FIFO valuatopn is some thing which would require ML...

however, there are companies who valuated the inventory based on FIFO at period end w/o any use of ML...

I am not very sure as I have never used it - But using MRN9 you can have a comparison of inventory values as per the 2 principles and if you tick "Update Database", it would post to the books....

Please await further replies from the forum members on this...
