There are two levels of custom systems. A semi-custom system is designed to meet your needs, using only off-the-shelf components. Whereas a fully customized system will be designed from the ground up to meet your requirements and could therefore contain a number of custom components, such as PCBs, chassis & cabling.
The most obvious reason is because there is no off-the-shelf system available that meets all of your project requirements. However, using a custom system may give you some competitive advantages, such as additional functionality, smaller size, longer availability or improved aesthetics.
