In my company, a defense contractor, there is a "clean desk" policy in the new areas.  The reasoning is that some employees have been in the habit of leaving part prints, test data, costing data and other sensitive or confidential information around for any passerby to see.  Of course they don't give us enough storage space to keep everything we need to do our jobs, so that's a constant struggle.

Although I am an ME, I have both a messy desk and messy benches.

Time pressure and the volume of work frequently prevent perfect order.

Entropy always wins.

Several projects are always underway. Frequently with short deadlines.

Without assistants and adequate storage facilities, projects must sit

in job boxes waiting for machined parts, paperwork, and approvals.

The shop is cleaned once a week, with tools rounded up and replaced,

debris and scrap consigned to their appropriate barrels. 

Set-ups are left intact on machines, as only the machinists are allowed

to take them down. Further, you risk a ball pein hammer to the head

if you tear down something the tool maker spent all day setting up.

During the week, my desk and the shop look like your photos, plus metal chips!

Perfectly clean everything would indicate we have no more work.
