You have tried to string independent clauses together without the appropriate use of a conjunction. I have removed the subject, 'it', from the second clause allowing the commas form a compound predicate. I think either 'or' or 'and' could be used, but I prefer 'and'.

 

The process goes to Step 100 if an input value is less than five, goes to Step 200 if the input value is five, and ends if the input value is more than five.
