We present a new algorithm to incorporate calculations with massive $b$-quarks, usually performed in the four flavour scheme, into a merged simulation obtained in the five flavour scheme. We apply this algorithm to $tt+\mathrm{jets}$ / $ttbb$ production, study the uncertainties of this newly developed method and compare our results to dedicated 4F/5F simulations.
