The mechanism of production of heavy-flavoured jets, originated by the hadronization of b or c quarks, in association with vector bosons, W or Z, in the Standard Model is of primary importance. It allows to refine the theoretical calculations in perturbative QCD, as well as validate associated predictions from simulation. The understanding of these processes is furthermore required by Higgs and Beyond the Standard Model searches with similar final states. Using the LHC proton-proton collision data collected at a center-of-mass energy of 7TeV by the CMS detector, measurements of the W+b, W+c, Z+b and Z+B hadrons cross sections are presented, comparing experimental data with several theoretical predictions in quantum chromodynamics.
