No, it's not possible.

OCS Inventory NG is not a monitoring tool and don't have any history.

As more and more user ask for it, we currently work for a future solution for those type of problem.

You can configure the server to save copies of the xml inventory reports in a directory, then periodically use a program to compare them to a previously saved snapshot copy.   However, since many of the entries change routinely, the comparison is not a simple task.   It would be nice to have something to remove the 'expected-to-change' entries and then push the file into a git repository or other version control system that would  only store the differences but be able to show changes between any two times or systems.
