We present prospects for the direct measurement of ratios of differential cross sections for the production of Z and Higgs bosons in proton-proton collisions, using data taken by CMS during the LHC Run II. The aim of the measurement is to study soft and hard gluon emission in the initial state for Higgs and Z production mechanisms. Hence, we focus on variables known to be sensitive to the production mechanisms of heavy bosons: jet multiplicity, transverse momenta of the boson and leading jet, and momentum balance in the transverse plane. We use Monte-Carlo samples to study the feasibility of the measurement and estimate the expected precision.
