I’m with richg, it depends on what I’m building. Some time’s it’s crucial to cut all the pieces at once to make sure they are identical (cut on the same setup), other times you want to custom cut as you go. Sometimes, its both in the same project – I’ve fiddled with box making and found it best to cut the side in matching pairs, and then cut the top and bottom to fit the sides.

One caveat though – if I’m milling my material, it’s all milled before hand.
