When the need arises for a prototype part to be generated to verify a new design, or the production quantity is such that the cost of tooling is not warranted, then these methods are a cost efficient way to get the results desired.
Almost any flat material can be waterjet/laser cut to tolerances of ± .005. Complex designs are not a problem.
Secondary operations such as edge chamfering, hole threading, etc. can also be performed.
In some cases, these methods are the only way to get an acceptable part. If the thickness of the specific material is such that the edges may crack or shatter, or if the physical characteristics of the material can not be altered, then these methods will produce the desired results.
