The upside of ordering doors is as DS states.

The disadvantages are:
1) Several weeks lead time.
2) If a mistake is made in ordering, then #1.
3) If a mistake is made in manufacturing then #1.
4) If a door/s are damaged in shipping, then #1.
5) Sometimes the manufacturer can’t make the design or size desired.

I see a pattern here.
I always advocated getting shaper knives to match the doors ordered, then if something happened, you could always make that one door quickly enough to get it in the stream along with the others.

Also, one must get confirmation on the design as soon as possible, because of #1.

Just depends on what you need and your situation.
