An algorithm of real value of inventory in inflation has been made. The model is made taking into consideration International Accounting Standards. In this point of view this model is based on maintenance of financial capital principle. The computer program for simulation of real value of inventory is made for modern process planning of engineering components manufacture. The program is an autonomous entity, but it can be part of one general program. Mathematical model of inventory was made from historical costs analyze. For the big inflation rate real value of inventory outflow has to be calculated by using precise methods.
