inventory valuation

The value of the inventory at either its cost or its market value. Because inventory value can change with time, some recognition is taken of the age distribution of inventory. Therefore, the cost value of inventory is usually computed on a FIFO, LIFO, or standard cost basis to establish the cost of goods sold.
