Which is better inverting or non inverting of signal processing?

Neither is better than the other. The reason for inverting a signal depends on the next device in the chain or for a specific phasing need in the design.

Maybe you need something to operate opposite of the incoming signal, for instance, when a voltage goes positive, you need it to go negative (or opposite), inverting would be used.

Of course, you can have the option of having both inverting and non-inverting operations at the same time, and can have multiple circuits performing that function.

Form follows function and a designer will do what ever's necessary to make the circuit operate as need requires.

Hope this helps,
