Redistribute OSPF with a Metric

When redistributing OSPF into another Routing Protocol using :
Redistribute OSPF 1  Metric <Number>

I am not sure why we need to specify a metric. in which case scenario the metric needs to be specified instead of just letting the OSPF redistribution to take the default?

Thanks

I was asking about when redistributing OSPF into orther protocols.
for instance :

Router EIGRP 10
Redistribute OSPF 1  Metric <Number>
what effect will havethe metric in the EIGRP domain?

the metric might have impact on RIP, because if you type
Router RIP
Redistribute OSPF 1  Metric 20

OSPF will not be able to travel more than 15 hops inside RIP.
