In these proceedings, we apply the recently developed S-ACOT-MPS factorization scheme at the next-to-leading order to prompt charm production at hadron colliders. It provides a good agreement with experimental data on charm meson production measured by LHCb at 7 and 13 TeV. The low-$p_T$ data are on the margins of the theoretical error bands, emphasizing the importance of including contributions beyond the next-to-leading order.

Simplified ACOT scheme with Massive Phase Space (S-ACOT-MPS) used to describe charmed meson production at hadron colliders. Flavor Excitation and Flavor Creation approaches fairly explain the D0 production in a wide phase to threshold production regime. Clear and lucid and well written text make the reader to understand the subject easily. I recommend it for publication.
