This paper extends some explanations about the convergence of a type of Evolution Strategies guided by Neighborhood Structures, the Neighborhood Guided Evolution Strategies. Different well-known Neighborhood Structures commonly applied to Vehicle Routing Problems are used to highlight the evolution of the move operators during the evolutionary process of a self-adaptive Reduced Variable Neighborhood Search procedure. Since the proposal uses only few components for its search, we believe it can be seen inside the scope of the recently proposed “Less Is More Approach”.
