What I do is cut all like pieces at one time. I do this because once I set up a jig, or the table saw I want to be sure all like pieces are exactly the same width and length. So typically I will start out and when I come to a point where there are duplicate pieces, I cut all of those at once, then I start assembly until I get to another point where there are more duplicate pieces then cut those all together. I dont like to cut all plan pieces at once before assembly because sometimes there are slight variations in length/width from the plan so I want to verify those pieces with the assembled pieces to be sure I have the correct size before I cut them.
