Soft gluon resummation is essential to obtain precise predictions for QCD processes with more scales involved. The formalism to follow in such scenarios is the Transverse Momentum Dependent factorization theorem. However, for practical applications a Monte Carlo approach is needed. We present the Parton Branching (PB) method- a Monte Carlo approach to obtain QCD collider predictions based on TMDs. We discuss its connection to standard resummation approaches. We present examples of recent PB applications to inclusive and exclusive observables, in the low and hight pt region.
