I'm guessing you mean factory utilization--is that right? If that's the case then utilization will drop if you have a material shortage or worker shortage (usually in a particular skill). I'll gues you know how to keep your material supplies flowing and focus on workers.
Let's say your upgrades or builds causes a shortage or HTS's (high tech specialist) then production will decline in one or more of your industries. This decline will occur even though you have a surplus in all other skills

You're on the right track to use factory utilization. I look for an industry with utilization over 100%, but sometimes an industry will be temporarily high but be a bad choice. As you play you'll learn those.

Right now I suggest Factory Maintenence, Service, Electric Power, electrical products. Stay away from weapons (a few exceptions here), foods (other food Products has worked for me), agriculture, Mining (oil seems ok). A lot of players go with High tech (computers, electronics) and they've worked in the long run for me but they fluctuate.

Good question--good luck and have fun

Jewelry and Luxury Goods can be pretty good, but depends on the world.

Don't forget the Big Four Defensive Ammo corps - Anti-aircraft missiles, Defensive missiles, Interceptor missiles, and Missile Interceptors.

In general, high value "consumables" are the way to go.
