The integration of hardware into furniture seeks to provide a better user experience and quality of life. For the smartified furniture to have the functionalities intended by the user, validations are required during the furniture smartification design and development processes. The authors propose a Smartification Quality Assurance System that is responsible for the validations of the furniture smartification process, ensuring that the hardware components used in smartification are compatible with the dimensions of the furniture and that the smartified furniture has the predefined functionalities. A validation framework is presented, whose purpose is to validate the intermediate steps of the furniture smartification process. A validation scenario of a furniture smartification process is also demonstrated. The applicability of the validation framework brings advantages to the furniture smartification process, such as: valid electronic hardware that can be used in the development of the smartification solution, the smartification problem is feasible, the solution and the furniture smartification prototype are valid both dimensionally and functionally. In this way the process of furniture smartification can occur continuously and uninterruptedly.
