I've found "latexmk" to be the best tool for compiling LaTeX
documents. It runs all necessary commands as many times as needed,
including pdflatex, bibtex, biblatex, etc.. It is fairly smart and will
run the command to make the index if you load the index, for example. 

It can run in daemon mode and monitor the included files (and graphics)
so if one of those changes, the PDF is regenerated.

I prefer daemon mode, so I bring up a terminal and run latexmk file.tex
in the folder where I'm working on file.org. This also speeds things up,
since exporting to latex is fast, but compiling is slow. I can export
and still use emacs, rather than waiting for the compile to finish.

But if you want to run latexmk from Org, that works too. The "-pvc-"
turns off the "preview continuous" mode (daemon).

(setq org-latex-pdf-process (list "/usr/texbin/latexmk -f -gg -pvc- %f"))
