Purchase requisition is created automatically when sales order is saved.
Purchase order is created at the vendor in the MM purchasing application (manually or automatically)
If the vendor does the outbound delivery to the customer, the goods receipt can be posted in the system
Invoice receipt is created (invoice from vendor)
Invoice to customer is created (order based invoice)
