Aluminum alloy 5083 annealing

In order to lower as much as possible internal stresses, increasing
dimensional stability on heavy sections (continuous casting plates) in
alloy 5083, I am going to perform the following annealing treatment:
- Temperature: 650°F / 343°C
- Time: 1 hour per inch thickness to reach temperature plus 1 hour
soaking at temperature.
Can anyone suggest anything better?
