The Warehouse module is deeply integrated with Sales, Purchases and Accounting modules. Most of the time it is not necessary for you to manually create a delivery order or receipt because they will be automatically created when you confirm any quotation or request for quotation.
A delivery order would be automatically created when you click at quotation to convert to sales order.
