This is possible and can be estimated. It can become accurate if we consider to use process management and are identifying the variables to build the model for calculation by inputting the values of variables. This can even be made to provide information on a real time basis too.

Calculation of inventory cost depends on several factors which are related to sales and current stock items.
But in simplistic terms, if your inventory is $500,000 and we assume that 22% of this is the annual cost then the inventory costs is $500,000 * 22% = $110,000 per year.
