Title of Study: Uni-REPM Safety Module: evaluating the maturity of safety processes in requirements engineering
Researchers: Jéssyka vilela, Universidade Federal do Ceará (UFC) and Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (UFPE), firstname.lastname@example.org Jaelson Castro, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (UFPE), email@example.com (Supervisor) Luiz Eduardo G. Martins, Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP), firstname.lastname@example.org (Supervisor)
Potential Benefits: Findings from the study may contribute to improve the quality of requirements engineering process of safety-critical systems. By using the safety module, we expect that safety processes and practices be adopted in the beginning of software development process contributing to a better quality of final system.
Potential Risks: There are no known risks in this study.
Confidentiality: By participating in this study you acknowledge and agree that your responses and contributions will be anonymously recorded for the purpose of more reliable data analysis.
Dissemination of Results: Aggregated results from this study will appear in articles and papers published in peerreviewed conferences and scientific journals.
Right to Withdraw: Participation in this study is voluntary, and you can decide not to participate at any time, or choose to not answer any questions you don’t feel comfortable with. Survey responses will remain anonymous. Since the survey is anonymous, once it is submitted it cannot be removed.
Questions: If you have any questions concerning the study, please feel free to ask at any point; you are also free to contact the researchers if you have questions at a later time. This research project doesn’t need to be approved by the ethics committee since it is just evaluating the practices presented in a maturity model. FollowUp or Debriefing: If you would like to know the results of this study, you can contact the researchers using the contact information provided above.
Consent to Participate: By completing and submitting this questionnaire, your free and informed consent is implied and indicates that you understand the above conditions of participation in this study.
