# probability of getting the right characteristics given the usage of multiple subprocess

A product has certain characteristics that depends of the different sub-process that can be used along its productive chain. However, using a specific set of sub-process does not garantee that the product will have some specific characteristics. For exemple:

If I use subprocessA+subprocessB+subprocessC
->
x% of chance I'll have characteristic1
y% of chance I'll have characteristic2
...

If I use subprocessB+subprocessB+subprocessD
->
k% of chance I'll have characteristic1
t% of chance I'll have characteristic2
...

I have a database with final products, its characteristics and the subprocess used.
I'd like to know if there is a way to calculate the chance of having characteristicN given just one subprocess.
For exemple:

subprocessA
->
s% chance I'll have charac.1
r% chance I'll have charac.2
...

subprocessB -> ...
