I got it by myself.
When we have a uniform distribution of P[S] the outcome of the productsum
is simply the average of all P[AS], since
And an average is of course less than or equal to the maximum of P[AS].
If P[S] is not distributed uniformly we still have an average, but a weighted average. But also here the result is always less than or equal to the maximum. Because you cannot find weighting factors that are in sum 1 but will lead to a higher result as the maximum P[AS].
