Some jobsites have problems with walls and floors that aren't square or level, or have localised deviations in their surfaces.

Although some of these issues can be dealt with when the cabinets are manufactured in the workshop, other problems are best handled on-site where components can be shaped to achieve an exact fit.

The hardware systems used in the construction of cabinets also have a bearing on the adjustments that may need to be made on-site.

There are various patented systems on the market for drawer slides and other moving parts which often have specialised methods for fitting and adjusting.
