For any BSM theory, the underlying particle mass spectrum will be among the first available information on the new physics involved. A multitude of techniques is currently available to determine the masses of new particles in these models from measured data. Here, we report on an ongoing study in which different mass determination methods are applied to a common SUSY event sample, generated including a generic collider detector simulation. The event sample was produced with and without the explicit generation of an additional hard jet by the hard matrix element to investigate possible effects of extra hard jet radiation. We report on first results of this study for several of the more commonly used mass determination methods.
