The general mass variable flavor number (GMVFN) scheme S-ACOT-MPS will
be discussed for proton-proton collisions. The impact of heavy-flavor
contributions within this factorization scheme will be shown for the production of a $Z$ boson in association with a charm/bottom quark in pQCD. An amended version of the QCD factorization formula for proton-proton collisions will be discussed as well as the role of $Z+c/b$ production at the LHC in constraining heavy-flavor PDFs. Phenomenological applications will be presented.
