I wonder if there's an example AF template that's built around pipelines, I have a gas distribution network use case and I just don't know from where to start. Appreciate any help.
What would you want to calculate in the AF for pipelines (is it active, flow, pressure...)?
It is not a problem to make a template when you know that.
Have you checked AF example kits?
AF Community Library
There are multiple examples and I hope some of them fit to you.
At least, I checked quickly and could not find pipe example.
Also there are multiple presentations from OSIsoft User conference.
You can see the Oil & Gas industry's presentations from here.
Check these and some of the presentations should contain AF hierarchy too.
