I'm connecting to Odoo modules via third party, so I'm using it's web services and I can do CRUD operations on the tables successfully, However I want to know how do each module use its tables? (for example in purchasing an order which table will be used and how) so I would like to know whether's there's a developer documentation for each module in Odoo and how tables will be used .

The best documentation for how each module works is available when turning on xml-rpc logging and using the software.

You can review the webservice calls for every functional workflow in the software.  As you enter information to be used to create a customer, you can see how the xml-rpc calls are made.  A focus on 'tables' isn't required or suggested, rather focus on the business logic and schema from the classes defined for each object:  customer, product, price list, sale order, etc.

Use something like:
