Under this method material is first issued fromthe earliest consignment on hand & price at thecost at which that consignment was placed instores.The unit in opening stock of material is treated as,if they are issued first, the unit from the firstpurchase issued next, so on until the units left inthe closing stock of material are valued at thelatest cost of purchase. It follows that unit costs
are apportioned to cost of production according totheir chronological order of receipts in the store.The method is most suitable in times of fallingprices because the issue price of materials to jobor works order will be high (material issued fromthe earliest consignment which were purchased athigher rate) while the cost of replacement will behow.
