Looking at the work of Clarence Birdseye it is easy to see where one could have frozen product in inventory for over a hundred years. Then if you sell that product to a retailer who keeps in in good frozen condition it might be on their shelves for another hundred years.


Heh... my first point is... sometimes it tastes that way. :-P

Although I certainly understand the jist of the Birdseye example, my suggestion is that it's not a practical example. If they have such old inventory, then they have a much larger problem than figuring out when to archive data and take it off-line. :-)


Exactly, archiving data is the least of their issues. What ever happen to using FIFO and checking shelf life? Companies generally use the oldest items in inventory first so they can continually roll the stock and prevent deterioration or obsolescence. FIFO has been widely used and accepted for obvious reasons. This is kind of fundamental guys w00t
