Factor is a multiplier that tells Odoo how to translate one Unit of Measure to another.
For each Unit of Measure Category, you have a default unit of measure against which all other units in that category are based (using the Factor).
Only Units of Measure with Type = Bigger than the Reference Unit of Measure or Type = Smaller than the Reference Unit of Measure need a Factor.
Example for the Category Units:
The Default Unit of Measure is Unit(s)
An additional Unit of Measure is Dozen(s)
Units(s) - Type = Reference Unit of Measure for this Category (No Factor)
Dozen(s) - Type = Bigger than the Reference Unit of Measure (Factor = 12)
The Factor tells Odoo that a Dozen is 12 times larger than a Unit.
So the Factor is needed when you add a Unit of Measure that is not of Type "Reference Unit of Measure for this Category" and is used to tell Odoo how much larger or smaller that Unit is compared to the Reference Unit.
