Whats the correct order to process photos?

Raw as is -> DSS -> tif -> PS?
Raw -> PS -> Mod Raw -> DSS -> PS?
Raw -> PS -> JPG -> DSS -> PS?

No matter what tools/apps you use you want to minimise any potential information loss until the last possible moment. Hence try to keep the images uncompressed and at the highest bit depth possible.

Using your example, your first line is probably the best path and the last line the worst.
