relationship between a sale order and its purchase order

Hi all,

If we receive one customer sale order, ERP system might generate several purchase orders for this SO. My understanding is that we could see their relationships through the following tables:

sale_order -> sale_order_line -> procurement_order -> purchase_order

Could anybody help confirm whether my thought are correct or not?

Another question is that for items in sale_order_line, there are products whose procurement_order ID is vacant. Does that mean these products have stock already, and so could ship from stock directly? No need to generate any procurement orders?

A futher question is that when purchase method is make to order, the sale order will create a purchase order same quantity of your sale order (You must define a supplier on product form). This sentence is only correct when the system has generated a procurement order, right? If no procurement order for one sale_order_line record, it won't create any purchase order in the end.

Thanks very much for your input. I am new to OpenERP system. :)

Any help on the question? thanks very much.
