Economic activities and seasonal changes are the forces that shape the operation in this industry and inventory can change from J.I.T. to stockpiling.

A seasonal and climate change can shift the emphasis/orders from air conditioners, window screens, and garden hoses to heating units, storm doors/windows, ice smelters, snow blowers, and shovels.

A storm/hurricane weather forecast will present orders for significant quantities of plywood, nails, screws, electrical saws, hammers and screw guns before the storm arrives; and large orders/stockpiles of lumber, roofing materials, cement, steel products, paint products and electrical, carpentry, masonry and mechanical products and supplies when the storm has ceased/abated.

Some material suppliers carry a variety of items in their inventory and they use the FIFO method of distribution. However, during the peak season or after a storm and demand is high and the warehouse is extremely busy employees may accidentally use the LIFO method of distribution. Hence, the company should determine in its policy whether inventory should be valued at cost, lower of cost or market, retail method, or other appropriate valuation method.
