In some cases a firm's demand and cost conditions are such that marginal profits are greater than zero for all levels of production up to a certain maximum in this case marginal profit plunges to zero immediately after that maximum is reached hence the mπ = 0 rule implies that output should be produced at the maximum level, which also happens to be the level that maximizes revenue.
