Yes. In general my rules are:

--Olympic lifts/variations first
--Deadlifts and squats
--Heavy compound posterior chain movements (RDLs, good mornings, etc.)
--Presses and rows
--Everything else, compound and most taxing to isolation

Also, if I have 2 pressing movements in a training day I like to split them to allow the triceps to recover. This really doesn't come into play in your routine.

In some cases I will power the Olympic variation after squats and deadlifts. I do this often myself, especially if my lower back is feeling sub-par.
