First in First Out
First in First Out (FIFO) is where the material produced by one process is used in the same order by the next process. A FIFO queue is filled by the supplying process and emptied by the customer process; when a FIFO lane gets full, production is stopped until the next (internal) customer has used some of that inventory.
