A long time ago we needed to have some metal castings milled to avoid shorting PCB etch when the castings were assembled to the PCB. We found a provincial government supported (NOT USA) shop to do the work. When I brought the castings and rework drawings to the shop I was surprised to find it incredibly clean. And only 3 staff - a receptionist, a head honcho, and the machinist that actually did all the work. Clean = no work in progress. Our tax dollars at worst.

Everything is sorted by weight - heavy stuff on the bottom; lighter stuff on the top. Works for me everytime...

When my desk is clean and neat, it means I'm out of work to do - no designs or projects left to work on!

Thank you. So many work wonders yet get so little public recognition. This is another example of hard-achieved progress simply taken for granted because it does not involve touchdowns, goals, runs, or baskets.

An obituary for Prof Rosalyn Yalow appeared a few days ago: http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2011/jun/26/rosalyn-yalow-obituary?INTCMP=SRCH which includes a picture of her at her very cluttered desk. Allowing a modest extension of the 'engineering workspace' definition it is worth noting that she was awarded the 1977 Nobel prize for medicine and physiology although originally trained as a physicist. The account is worth reading for what she had to overcome in recognition of her work. Scott Hamilton

Some are seeking truth from politicians - totally wrong place to search for; others think that employees are inspired by a 5S-conformant desk - well this might be fine for shared working areas; many might believe that a messy desk by itself is a sign for genuity - for sure you NEED genuity to handle such a desk. While I never had the pleasure to meet Bob personally, I really liked his writing which covered much more than analog stuff. For sure, any 5S reminder in our office puts a smile on my face - Bob simply didn't care about. What I will keep in mind is Bob's helping hand.
