Default cabinet cutting strategies

I have a question for you guys.

Doing a remodel and my contractor has agreed to let me build the cabinets. So I am going to use cabinet parts pro.

What are the cutting strategies to eliminate tear out?

I was thinking of using a machining allowance and a down spiral bit, then coming back and using a compression bit for a final pass?

I am setting up a vacuum table for this job also, so initial cut out will leave an onion skin and final pass will allow for that offset and full cut out.

Some people tell me that when cutting good cabinet grade plywood that tear out is not a worry because of quality.

Anyhow, any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

I use a compression spiral for every thing but the shelf pin holes.
I use pre finished maple for my cab boxes.
